How to Make Cinnamon Streusel Cake


  1. Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, buttermilk and sugar. Beat 2 minutes. Pour half of the batter in a greased/floured 13x9 baking dish.
  2. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Sprinkle half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture over batter.
  4. Pour remaining cake batter into pan.
  5. Top with remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  6. Draw a knife through the batter to make a swirl design.
  7. Bake 40 minutes at 325.
  8. Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle over warm cake.
  9. Note: Most of the time, I use Saco Buttermilk powder instead of fresh buttermilk. 4 Tablespoons of powder plus one cup of water.
