This moist, not too sweet, cake with streusel, was our special Christmas morning breakfast treat. The rule was, "it's okay to look in your stocking whenever you wake up, but no presents until everyone is gathered." Everyone gathered with fresh squeezed orange juice and this coffee cake for the opening of the gifts.
In the past year or so, I've tried several variations, adding blueberries & lemon zest; cranberries & orange zest; dried cherries with almonds substituted for the pecans. The 'regular' cake is great, and all these variations have worked well (except trying to make it 'chocolatized').
