Wonderful coffee cake! The cake was moist and the two layers of streusal was divine. I did add mini-choclate chips instead of the currants. And this time I did not do the icing because I was out of powdered sugar. It was still excellent anyway. The streusal amount I thought was too much so maybe next time I will just half the amounts. This is a keeper, thanks!

I did a double batch of this for a brunch at work, they were gobbled up in no time flat. OUTSTANDING. Since if was for a brunch, I baked them off as cupcakes, cooked at 375 for about 20 mins. As usual, Di's recipe's kick butt. Besides being a hottie that girl can cook, your man must be one lucky guy :-)
