Saigon Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: German
Author: Gaby


For the cake:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Spice Islands Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Spice Islands Sea Salt
  • 1 cup sour cream

For the streusel topping:

  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands Sea Salt
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 ºF. Spray a 9-inch spring-form pan with baking spray and set aside.
  • In a large stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla to the butter mixture, and scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed, until fully incorporated.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and mix on low speed until just combined.
  • Add the sour cream and mix for 60 seconds more, until fully incorporated.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the ingredients for the topping and, using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until you have a crumbly mixture.
  • Transfer half of the batter to the prepared spring-form pan and smooth out so it covers the bottom. Sprinkle ½ cup of the streusel topping on top of the batter, and then cover with the remaining batter.
  • Sprinkle the remaining streusel on top of the batter. Transfer the spring-form pan onto a baking sheet and then into the prepared oven.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes, until a knife can be inserted into the center and comes out clean. Remove from the oven. Let the cake cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake and serve with coffee.
