Need to decide on your streusel topping as it's not included. I used a 9 inch square pan and baked for 35 minutes. topping went to the bottom not sure why that happened....
German Coffee Cake
From some cookbook I borrowed from the library 15-20 years ago. I'm unsure what makes this 'German' -- the soured milk? Very tasty cake, though. Flavorful but not too sweet. Use my oatmeal streusel topping or whatever floats your boat. Also try other spices -- anything pumpkin/apple pie would be good; cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, clove, cardamom.
