Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

With this past weekend being Mother’s Day weekend, my hubby surprised me and made breakfast for us. While I was enjoying my morning coffee, he made this for all of us to enjoy and it was the perfect start to our day. The cake was incredibly moist, flavorful, and didn’t take too long to make. The kids especially loved it and after enjoying their first piece, asked for seconds. Whether having company over, wanting a yummy breakfast or snack, or needing something to bring to a gathering; this is the perfect coffee cake for any occasion!
