Streusel-Topped Cinnamon Cake

Dive into a slice of this heavenly Cinnamon Cake, where every bite is infused with warm spices and finished with a delightfully crunchy streusel topping.

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 90g Unsalted Butter (cold and cubed)
  • 90g All-Purpose Flour
  • 112g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Streusel Method:

  1. In a bowl, blend together butter, flour, brown sugar, and salt. Use a paddle attachment on a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer on a low setting. Mix until the mixture forms into clumps and no dry flour is visible.
  2. Refrigerate the streusel mixture while you prepare the cake to keep it firm.

For the Cinnamon Cake:

  • 275g Plain Yogurt
  • 4g White Vinegar
  • 100g Granulated Sugar
  • 50g Light Brown Sugar
  • 108g Neutral Oil (like vegetable or canola)
  • 188g All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Cake Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Prepare an 8×8 inch square baking tin by greasing with oil and lining with baking paper for easy release.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the plain yogurt, white vinegar, both sugars, and cinnamon powder until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, being cautious not to overmix.
  5. Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking tin. Evenly sprinkle the chilled streusel topping over the batter.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 25 minutes. Then, drizzle with your choice of homemade icing or a dusting of powdered sugar for a sweet finish.

Serve this scrumptious cake as a delightful start to your morning, as an afternoon pick-me-up, or as a sweet end to your day. Enjoy the harmony of soft cake and crunchy topping in every slice!
