Growing up my grandma, who was an amazing baker, used to make a cinnamon streusel coffee cake that would make anyone's mouth water. A few weeks ago I asked my mom about it and we did some research to try and find a recipe most similar to my grandma's. Since she would make it from scratch, she didn't have exact measurments of anything, but we told her about this recipe and she said it sounded exactly like hers! This morning my mom and I finally made it and I wanted to share the recipe with you! Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c. walnuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted
Mix all in small bowl and set aside.
  • 1 pkg. yellow cake mix
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 3 eggs
Combine all ingredients, mix well, beat 2 minutes at high speed.
Spread 2/3 of batter in greased and floured 9x13 inch pan. Sprinkle half of streusel mixture over cake. Add rest of batter and sprinkle with rest of streusel. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-50 minutes. Serves 16.
