Recipe Notes

Please read the whole recipe before starting. 

The recipe has been broken down into 3 separate sections for ingredients and their directions. 

  1. Cake
  2. Streusel Topping
  3. Icing

I suggest making the Streusel Topping first. Next, make the cake. While the cake is baking make the icing.
