Coffee Cake with Coffee Coconut and Chocolate Streusel

I got this recipe from Maxwell House Coffee cookbook. The original recipe has cereal instead of coconut and doesn’t have chocolate, it does have a coffee glaze instead which I opted not to make but I included in the recipe below. This is of course very easy to make and very delicious!

Have fun baking! 🙂


Mix all ingredients until smooth


spread a third of the batter on a greased baking pan..


top with coconut-chocolate mixture..repeat layer then top with the remaining batter. Bake.


Enjoy! 😀
