Everyone needs a delicious coffee cake recipe in their repertoire, and this cinnamon streusel coffee cake recipe is the perfect option. Meaning "something strewn" in Old German, streusel is easy to throw together -- and then to throw on top of this sour-cream coffee cake. The sweet glaze in the recipe is the perfect coffee cake topping.

This pudding-like German dessert is generally made with fresh red currants as the base. Adding other red fruits, such as raspberries, strawberries, and cherries, is common, but if doing so, use them in place of the second pound of currants in step 2. This dessert is also nice topped with creme anglaise instead of whipped cream.
