  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar into the bottom of prepared baking dish.
  2. Combine brown sugar, walnuts, softened butter, 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon in a bowl using a fork until streusel is crumbly.
  3. Mix 3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Beat eggs in a third bowl using an electric mixer until frothy; add white sugar and melted butter and beat until creamy. Add milk, sour cream, and vanilla extract and beat until smooth. Stir flour mixture into milk-butter mixture until batter is well blended.
  4. Spread 1/2 of the batter into the prepared baking dish; top with 1/2 of the streusel mix. Spread remaining batter over streusel layer and top with remaining streusel.
  5. Place dish on the center rack in the preheated oven; bake until a fork inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute pecans for the walnuts, if desired.

cook time definitely needs longer - I agree with the other two reviewers. I let mine bake for 30 and it turned out well; otherwise the middle is still wet. I also added another 1/4 cup of milk...

I made a few changes. I used a bundt pan so I sandwiched all of the strudel between the top and bottom cake pieces. I used the teaspoons for the baking powder like the reviews said, sprinkled ...

I also used teaspoons rather than tablespoons for the baking powder. I subbed fat free yogurt for the sour cream; and used soy milk instead of cow's milk. The batter was very thick, making it ...

Excellent. Best cinnamon coffee cake recipe I've made. Cooking time was different..about 33-35 min..

I made a half recipe of this cake today. It came out very delicious. However I will caution everyone that there has to be a mistake in the amount of Baking Powder. I made a couple of changes, bu...

I used pecans for this since walnuts weren't on hand. It turned out absolutely wonderful after about half an hour in the oven. Perfect amount of cinnamon. Now I just need coffee!
