Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake – A light & fluffy golden cake topped with a classic cinnamon, brown sugar streusel topping.
This coffee cake recipe has been in my family for years, made by one of my mom’s best friends, Shelia. Since then we have made several twists on this delicious recipe and I have to say that this version of Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake is by far my favorite. Made with a few simple ingredients make this apart of your Mother’s Day brunch.

Mother’s Day is the one “holiday” that I am picky. The rest of the holidays I am all about what the kids love and the hubby will eat, but Mother’s Day I could really care less if they like what we are having or not.
There is one thing though that we all love and that is coffee cake. Seriously it has been a staple in our home and family since I was a child. Every once in a while I get the gumption to add a twist or two onto this recipe and try something new. This time it was streusel topping, thanks to the suggestion from my friend Allison who made it first!
Light, fluffy and moist this coffee cake I thought couldn’t be better, but add a cinnamon streusel and a light dusting of powdered sugar, you have the best pastry to start off Mother’s Day with.
Whether it is breakfast in bed or brunch to celebrate all the amazing women and mother’s in your life, this Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake will be a hit!
I love the month of May, not only do you have spring, school getting out of session, neighborhood pools opening up, flowers blooming but you Mother’s Day. The day I lounge in jammies and don’t think about the store or whatever. I love seeing the bustle around my house of the kids making last minute cards and my husband making something delicious on the grill.
Being a mom to 5 kids, makes my heart want to burst. To say I am blessed is an understatement. Time flies and I cherish the days of their little hand made notes out of paint and crayons, but I will say almost having one kid two weeks from driving is pretty amazing.
What is amazing about this Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake recipe is that the kids can even make it themselves.

Celebrate how your kids see you in their eyes because then we aren’t we all just some form of superhero?
Well, at least we are until they reach 15, lol. Happy Mother’s Day friends.
