  1. One of my absolute favorite things in the world to do is wake up on the weekends and make a delicious breakfast. If you’ve read any of my earlier posts you’ll know that I’m obsessed with breakfast. I have a tie for my favorite meal of the day: breakfast… and dessert. I think it might be due to the fact I’m addicted to sugar. Anyways… this is one of my favorite recipes because it can be used for either! Breakfast or dessert. YES! My life is complete. The sour cream keeps this cake extra moist and the maple syrup glaze gives it a little something special.
  2. The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 350*F. Grease a 10 inch springform pan, cake pan, or bundt cake pan. Whichever you choose. I like to use a springform pan just because it ensures the cake will come out easily. In a bowl cream together with an electric mixer the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and sour cream. Mix until smooth. To the wet ingredients add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix all together until just combined and smooth. Put that to the side and make the streusel. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add the cold butter and with your fingers and pinch the mixture until it forms a crumble. Add half the batter to the pan and even out with a spatula. To the top of the batter add about 3/4 of the streusel in an even layer. Put the remaining half of the batter and once again spread it out evenly. Add the rest of the streusel to the top of the batter and put in the oven. Let cook for one hour or until you stick a knife in the middle and it comes out clean. Take out of the oven and let cool for about 20 minutes. When it is cooled take out of the pan and put the cake streusel side up on the cake plate you are going to use. Now it’s time to make the glaze. In a small bowl add the powdered sugar and maple syrup. Mix until the glaze is all mixed together. You might need a little more maple syrup in order to make it runny. Drizzle the glaze with a fork or spoon as you’d like. Slice, and serve! Who says you can’t eat dessert for breakfast?
