Directions See How It's Made
- Streusel - Combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mix in the melted butter. Set aside.
- Cake - In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt). Add butter, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk. Beat until smooth.
- Grease and flour a 9-inch spring form pan.
- Spread half the batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with half of the streusel mixture. Spoon remaining batter over streusel, then top with remaining streusel.
- Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Loosely cover with foil during the last 20 minutes to prevent the streusel topping from becoming too brown.
