- Combine streusel ingredients of brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice in small bowl. Cut in butter with two knives until mixture is crumblyand fold in the nuts if using. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake ingredients. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium for 4 minutes.
- Pour half the batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Sprinkle streusel over the center of the batter, not touching the sides of the pan. Top streusel with remaining cake batter.
- Bake 50-55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. While cooling, make glaze by beating cream cheese in a small bowl at medium speed for 2 minutes or until very creamy. Slowly beat in powdered sugar, then vanilla. Beat in 3 tablespoons milk Add more milk if needed to get desired consistency for drizzling. When cake is cooled, drizzle with glaze and serve.
