Streusel Filled Coffee Cake

Homemade coffee cake is a great way to warm up a chilly winter morning. When my children were young we would make this recipe for coffee cake. They would have so much fun helping me make it. And the best part is they didn’t have to wait for it to cool and be iced. They could eat it warm from the oven. So today my grand daughter Katie was spending the day with me. I thought we could make this together and I can share my stories about her mommy and her Uncle Sean. She is 3 1/2 and loves her mamal’s stories.

Streusel Filled Coffee Cake

Serves 10
Prep time 20 minutes
Cook time 25 minutes
Total time 45 minutes
Whole Wheat Streusel filled Coffee Cake using Sucanat and expeller pressed coconut oil.


  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cups sucanat
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/4 cup expeller pressed coconut oil (solid)
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter (melted)


I made the coffee cake both ways today using whole wheat flour in one, and all purpose white in the other. You could hardly taste a difference between the whole wheat flour and the all purpose flour. Using my freshly ground hard white wheat flour made this extra yummy. I only added the orange juice to the recipe with the whole wheat flour because I find it absorbs more moisture then white flour.


Pre heat oven to 375F
Grease round layer pan 9 x 1 1/2 inch
In large bowl add whole wheat flour / all purpose flour
add sucanat / sugar
add baking powder
add sea salt
add expeller pressed coconut oil (solid) / shortening
add milk, egg and orange juice
mix until well blended / set aside
In a small bowl add brown sugar
add cinnamon
add melted butter
mix until blended
pour half of the batter into round pan
sprinkle half the streusel filling over the batter
top with remaining batter
then top with remaining streusel filling
bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
