A tender, moist Cinnamon Zucchini Streusel Coffee Cake loaded with good for you zucchini and spicy cinnamon chips. It’s crowned with a sweet, crumbly streusel topping and finished with a pretty glaze.
If you’ve ever grown zucchini, you know one plant produces more zucchini than one family can eat. When my neighbor shared her bounty with me, I thought about making my Cinnamon Zucchini Muffins but decided instead to change things up and turn the recipe into a coffee cake.
My family and I are crazy about coffee cakes, especially if they have a streusel topping. But I couldn’t stop with a streusel topping, because my husband thinks every coffee cake also needs a sweet glaze.
To make pretty drips down the edges of the coffee cake, put the glaze in a Ziploc bag and cut a whole in one corner of the bag. Then make a little puddle of the glaze on the edge of the coffee cake and let gravity work it’s magic.
Hershey’s makes cinnamon baking chips. They can be a little bit difficult to find, but stores seem to carry them more in the fall and winter. I’ve had good luck finding them at Walmart, and if you live in Utah, Harmons usually carries them year round.
My family inhaled this coffee cake. I had planned on taking a slice to my zucchini giving neighbor, but that didn’t happen. She has however, put in her request for a loaf of Chocolate Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread. That’s on my to-do list for this week.
Add this Cinnamon Zucchini Streusel Coffee Cake to your to-do list this week. Your family will be glad you did.
