Crumb Cake or Coffee Cake With Easy Streusel Topping

Recipe by Crocheting Mama

I never seem to have butter softened to the right temperature when I want to make coffee cake, so I finally asked my mom for her recipe, and it doesn't require any softened butter, just oil, so it is a breeze to make. It is easy to get the consistency of the crumb topping just right. You could substitute other types of nuts if you wanted.
