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).

Delicious!! I did not have the raisins which I am sure would enhance it even more. It is a tasty tender cake with a really terrific topping. A drizzle of Confectionary icing if you like. Thanks Kates Kitchen, doTry it,
