I made several changes to the recipe, white flour only, yogurt instead of sour cream, jumbo eggs 2 whole+1 white. I doubled the streusel. Next time in the cake I will double the spices and/or use part brown sugar. It was a bit plain for my taste. I will make this again.

Very good cake. I think that the alllspice makes it different from other streusel cakes. I did add a splash of milk to the batter just to make it a little moister for my husband and it came out very good. Made for Bevy Tag.

Shelby this is a very light textured cake - almost to the point a bit more moisture to hold it together would not be a bad thing. Overall the flavors are excellent - nice spices and the wheat flour just gives it another notch up. With your permission I used almonds in place of the pecans and it turned out wonderful in the topping! I love that this cake is not overly sweet so it makes a perfect breakfast treat but also a nice light dessert with coffee. So glad I tagged this is Photo Tag.
