Recipe by Paja
I got this recipe from my friend Dave. He would bring it to work and it would disappear in an instant. I'm not a great baker, but if I want something quick, delicious, and not overly sweet, this is the recipe I turn to. The streusal topping is what sets it apart. It is nice served cold, but is even better when still warm and accompanied by ice cream or whipped cream.
