Cinnamon Streusel

  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt


Cinnamon Streusel

Combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter in a medium bowl. Mix with a fork until lumps form.


First, preheat the oven to 350 ° F and grease a 9 X 9 inch pan with butter.

Then, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and cinnamon.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.

Add the flour mixture.

Add sour cream or Greek yogurt and stir until combined.

Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared pan and with an offset spatula, roll out to cover the bottom.

Sprinkle half of the cinnamon streusel evenly over the cake batter.

Cover with the rest of the dough and sprinkle again with the remaining streusel.

Bake, 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs. Happy Cooking Time.
