128. Streusel-Sour Cream Coffee Cakes p.645

Unfortunately there’s no recipe online.
The Book has a deep and abiding affection for streusel-toppings. I suspect that if the cooks at the Gourmet test kitchen leave their batter alone for too long, they’ll find that Ruth Reichl has snuck in and covered it in streusel. I don’t particularly have anything against streusel toppings, they add [...]
