Almond Orange Streusel Coffee Cake

Almond Orange Streusel Coffee Cake


"This is a fabulous coffee cake! It has a crumbly sliced almond and brown sugar streusel topping plus a delicious glaze and a hint of orange throughout the cake. For variety, substitute a different type of nut in the streusel mixture. You can also use a Bundt cake pan if you don't have a tube pan. Absolutely irresistible!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch tube pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, almonds, and flour. Stir in butter and 1 teaspoon orange zest, and set aside.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, thoroughly beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Mix in eggs one at a time. Beat in remaining teaspoon orange zest and vanilla extract.
  4. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda. With an electric mixer set to Low, alternately mix in egg mixture and 2/3 cups orange juice to make a batter. Spoon 1/2 the batter into the prepared 9 inch tube pan. Top with 1/2 the brown sugar mixture. Cover with remaining batter, and top with remaining brown sugar mixture.
  5. Bake 25 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
  6. Mix 5 teaspoons orange juice and confectioner's sugar in a small bowl, and use to glaze the cooled cake.

What a great coffee cake! I was afraid it would be too sweet with all the brown sugar in the streusel and the powdered sugar glaze, but it was perfect. I didn't have an orange to zest, so I st...

This was an exceptional coffee cake. This recipe will be added to make it often list. The only change I did was to use only 1/2 cup of brown sugar, otherwise I followed it exactly. It is wond...
