Variation on Pumpkin Streusel Coffee Cake

Last week I posted a recipe for Pumpkin Streusel Coffee Cake.  Yesterday I came up with a variation on this to make another coffee cake for church today.  To the yellow cake mix I added 1 cup of sour cream, 4 eggs and 3/4 cup vegetable oil.  I mixed it for around 3 minutes on medium speed in my mixer.  Then I "layered" it with the Streusel as I did in the Pumpkin Streusel Coffee Cake recipe.  Bake the same and then when it is cool drizzle with a little confectioner sugar glaze.  Just take some confectioners sugar, add a little vanilla and thin with some milk. 

This was very, very good.  Give it a try.  I wonder what other variations I can come up with.  I'm thinking that I may add a layer of apple butter with streusel on top the next time.

Oh and by the way, yes I am still on a diet but I am enjoying treats in moderation.  (Hi Debs.)

I'm trying to eat healthily too. ButI have lots of weight to lose - two pregnancys and i'm the sort of person that put weight on after baby was born!

I think I do best when i concentrate on getting lots of veg into my diet and cutting back on the bread type stuff

I tend not to make this sort of recipe cos I grew up in a house where my dad needed a gluten free diet, so i'm used to cooking from scratch and using a box mix just feels wrong to me!

(not that i'm trying to criticise, just explaining how I feel!)

We have guests visiting this week and I made the original recipe that you posted. Everyone loved it! Next time I will try this variation. Thanks!

Sounds delicious! I went cidering last weekend and came home with 5 gallons of cider and 2 boxes of apples. So I've been making lots of apple goodies. I made apple pumpkin muffins with a streusel topping that were very good. Let me know if you would like the recipe.
