This was a very good and easy cake. I think next time I will add some vanilla to the batter!

I hope it did not matter that I did not let it sit overnight but just gave it a couple of hours over lunchtime !! We loved it and the texture of the cake was soft and velvety. We ate it warm with custard.

Moist and crunchy, this is a great overnight breakfast! The tang of the buttermilk meshes well with the nutmeg and cinnamon, and the streusel 'like' topping was wonderful. I followed the directions as written and have tucked this away for future breakfasts. You've made my life a bit easier, especially on a holiday! Thanks for sharing, breezermom.
