Chocolate Streusel Coffee Cake

Chocolate Streusel Coffee Cake

My most treasured gift this birthday was "Heavenly Cakes" by Rose Levy Beranbaum. So it is only fitting that the first cake I bake from the book is for the person who gifted it to me in the first place, this is for you Vinushree :) .. This cake is simple and has a beautiful crumbly texture. Do give it a try!
