Saigon Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

First I just want to congratulate the 2 winners of my 2 more recent giveaways: Lindsay Merrill won the Keys to the Kitchen Cookbook Giveaway and Lynda M. won the Harry and David gift basket giveaway!! Check your emails if you’re the winners so I can get your goodies sent off to you!

Can we all agree that sometimes all you need in life is a slice of cake and piping hot cup of coffee. Okay unless you’re like me, and you can’t actually have coffee because the caffeine makes you bounce off of walls and go crazy, so I’ll just stick to luke warm caffeine free tea. (super hot drinks burn my mouth. And if I burn my mouth I can’t taste things. And what on earth would happen to me then?) But we can all agree on the cake part right? I mean I just need a little something sweet to get me through the end of the day. Am I wrong? I hope not.


That’s where this Saigon Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake comes into play. It’s a recipe I developed a few months back for Spice Islands. And it’s freaking good. The cake is great – but its the Saigon Cinnamon laced Streusel that just blows you out of the water. Is it weird that I eat the streusel by itself sometimes? And I always make extra because I know I’m going to pick half of it away before I serve the actual cake. Yup. I’m that kid. I’ll wear it proudly.

With all these holiday events coming up and parties galore, I think this would be a really nice hostess gift if you’re into that kinda thing. I mean who wouldn’t want to greet you at the door with this Saigon Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake in your hand? I certainly would welcome you right into my home and grab 2 forks and eat it with you with a few glasses of prosecco. Is that weird? If you’re into that kind of thing, we could totally be friends.

Also. I’m just saying. This makes for an excellent breakfast.

You should make it. I promise you’ll love it. Hop on over to Spice Islands for the recipe :)

  1. In the recipe it lists powdered sugar and milk twice. Does any powdered sugar go in the cake, or is it just in the glaze? Thanks!
