Streussel Coffee Cake

I don’t remember Mom making coffee cake.  Probably the first time I had it was in Home Ec class in high school.  I guess an appropriate time to have coffee cake would have been about 4 o’clock in the afternoon.  More often than not, Mom and Dad stopped to have coffee and maybe some boughten sugar cookies.  I enjoyed joining them, although my coffee had more sugar and milk in it than coffee.
