Terrific cake recipe! I was worried because I had so much streusel mix and thought there is no way this is going to work right - but boy was I wrong! This cake bakes up to perfection with a wonderful swirl of cinnamon streusel through the middle. I did omit the pecans as I was serving to friends and wanted to avoid any nut allergies. I did use the vanilla glaze recipe included. I think it could be reduced a bit to possibly a cup of powdered sugar as I had a lot of glaze. It did take about 4 tbls of water too to make the glaze. Everyone (all 12 of them!) gave this cake rave reviews! Thanks for making me look good! Made for the Sweet Traditions Tag game!
