I think this recipe is written incorrectly. There is only 2 tablespoons of butter in the cake and 4 tablespoons in the streusel: I think the amounts are backwards. I did make it as written. The cake is bland and not very moist, and the streusel was so gloppy that I had to pinch off small amounts with my fingers and drop the pieces around the cake. I could not spread the streusel and the pieces of streusel sank into the cake as it baked. The cake was edible, but disappointing.

I added raisins to the batter. For the topping, I substituted brown sugar for the white sugar, and added chopped pecans. The topping didn't crumble, probably because I used brown sugar instead of white. That didn't seem to take away anything from the cake; it was excellent. I will definitely make this again.
