Looking forward to trying this Penzeys recipe out. It looks similar to the cinnamon cake in Starbucks.

This is a great-tasting coffee cake. I'm not sure what vanilla sugar is (which is called for in the streusal). I just used regular sugar. Mine took almost 47 minutes to bake in the center, and I had the oven preheated to 350 degrees. I also think the steusel topping should be gently pressed into the batter (the directions do not indicate this).
