Streusel Coffeecake Pound Cake

For years and years, I was actively involved with the longest running Decorators’ Show House in the country. Though I still volunteer, I’ve taken a back seat to a terrific group of newer members. So I bring coffeecakes to gatherings and work just a shift or two. This fall I whipped up this marvelous Streusel Coffeecake Pound Cake to take to a life members’ coffee.

Streusel Coffeecake Pound Cake | When dessert and breakfast collide!!!

A Marriage of the Bundt Cake and Coffeecake!

I found this recipe in Southern Living and tweaked it just a smidgen. A dense pound cake batter was layered with a buttery pecan streusel transforming it into a coffeecake. Or maybe not? Though I served this at a ladies’ brunch, it would be equally as welcome with a cup of coffee after dinner. You make the call.

P.S. If you like streusel, check out this marvelous Sara Lee Copycat Butter Streusel Coffeecake! My picky hubby couldn’t keep his paws off it!

Streusel Coffeecake Pound Cake

A cross between a vanilla pound cake and streusel coffee cake can be eaten any time of day!

  • Author: Liz Berg
  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 90 mins
  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients

Streusel::

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans

Cake::

  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles small peas. Stir in ¾ cup pecans. This is the pecan streusel; reserve this to sprinkle over the top of the cake
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Place the 1 cup of chopped pecans on a baking sheet. Toast till fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir once in the middle of baking time. Cool 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°.
  3. Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
  4. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
  5. Pour half of batter into a greased and floured (I use Baker’s Joy spray) 12 cup tube pan. Stir together toasted pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over batter. Spoon remaining batter over pecan mixture; sprinkle with the reserved pecan streusel.
  6. Bake at 325° for 1 hour plus 20-30 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack to finish cooling.
