    AlaskaStephanie's Note:

    One more way to use your starter! Sometimes I skip the topping and just drizzle white frosting over the top.

      Lovely dense coffee cake, quick to fix and perfect with coffee or tea. We enjoyed how the topping sank into the cake in places. Used starter that I'd fed earlier in the day. Next time I'd bake only 30 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Easy and moist treat for any occasion. I add a teaspoon of cardamom, a teaspoon of ginger and a tablespoon of almond or vanilla extract to the cake batter. Since I rarely use butter, shortening works well for the streusel topping. I also let the batter rise for a couple of hours and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. A great way to use some of your sour dough starter.

      5 stars after slight modification. Since I pulled my extra starter out of the fridge, I let it sit out for a half hour before mixing all the ingredients. I then poured the mixture into the pan and let it sit covered for another half hour. Like another reviewer, I also decreased the brown sugar in the topping to 1/4 cup. I added chopped pecans to the topping and might add pecans to the cake itself next time. A wonderful Sunday breakfast on a cold day with a cup of joe, the smell of cinnamon wafting through the house. And something different from the extra starter waffle and pancake recipes! Future recipe variations with fruit are playing in my mind. Thank you.
