Recipe by alane

Streusel-topped, light on molasses and heavy on spice, has a moist, almost coffeecake like texture and a delicate crumb. The streusel melts into the cake and provides a yummy appearance. Be sure to coat the bottom of your pan with cooking spray. This recipe came from Relish magazine.
