*Streusel Coffee Cake*

Hi, this streusel reminds me of the Godfathers pizza streusel. I really like this stuff, so I can only allow myself to have one slice. So, I saver every bite. This recipe is pretty easy.
I hope you all had a good and safe 4TH. Here is the recipe.


*Streusel Coffee Cake*

Servings: 12

Streusel:
3 Tbls. Flour
¼ Cup Brown Sugar, packed
1½ Tsp. Cinnamon
¼ Cup Butter,softened & Cut Into Pieces
¾ Cup Walnuts, Chopped

Coffee Cake:
3 Tsp. Dry Yeast
¼ Cup Warm Water, 105°F.
3 Tbls. Butter, Softened
3 Tbls. Sugar
1/8 Tsp. Salt
2 Cups Flour
1/8 Cup +1 Tsp. Milk
1 Egg

Streusel:
In a bowl mix flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Using a pastry cuter or fork, cut the butter into coarse crumbs. Add the nuts in and set to the side.

Coffee Cake:
Coat a 12 inch pizza pan with cooking spray In another bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Let it stand until it becomes foamy, about 10 minutes. Using a large bowl, use a mixer and set it on high speed. Beat butter, sugar, and salt about 3 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Add milk, egg, yeast, and 1/4 cup of flour to the butter mixture; mix well. Add in enough of the flour to make a soft, smooth dough. Split into 2 even balls. Roll 1 ball into a 12 inch round on a flowered surface. Carefully place 12 inch round on the prepared pizza pan. Spread half the streusel over the dough, leaving a 1 inch edge. Roll the other ball of dough into a 12 inch round and place on the top of the streusel. Seal the edges of dough together. Preheat oven at 375°F. and sprinkle the remaining streusle over that dough. Let it rise for about 40 minutes. Bake the cake for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and set on a wire rack to cool. Cut into wedges and serve.
