Found in mom's recipe notebook. I remember this one being a keeper!! Hope you like it too.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Not overly sweet, just sweet enough, this is the perfect coffee cake! It's a simple, old-fashioned recipe. What makes this so special is the mixture of spices. The cinnamon is the most noticeable, but there's a perfect balance of spices in the cake. Serve with a cup of coffee or tea, and you have one great treat.

Note: Our wooden spoon was not cooperating, so we used a pastry cutter for the streusel. Worked like a charm. Also, like lots of old-fashioned recipes, the cake pan size was not specified. We baked this in a 9x13 baking dish. The Test Kitchen
