Streusel Coffee Cake Mix

I prepare two different mixes—one for the cake and one for the topping—to make this sweet breakfast treat. I often give these mixes as fun holiday gifts. Along with the recipe, I usually include a cake pan, wooden spoon and festive dish towel. —Barbara Stewart, Portland, Connecticut
