THB #14 Chocolate Cheese Streusel Ribboned Cake

So glad I managed to steal time to bake this wonderfully easy and tasty cake
The fourteenth bake for The Home Bakers, hosted by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours, baking with a group of members from the book  "Coffee Cakes" by Lou Seibert Pappas
Perfect with a cuppa! Not only me, but the whole family enjoyed it too :)




I love the texture of this cake, fine and moist, really delicious
I baked half recipe but I used full recipe streusel, and I sprinkled all in between the cake, I didn't add on top, hence the "thick ribbon" LOL




I didn't include cinnamon powder and almond extract since my family doesn't fancy them
For me myself, I love cinnamon but I dislike almond extract
I too love the idea of mixing in chopped nuts in the streusel, but my kids dislike nuts for now, so I replaced it with semi sweet chocolate chips and grated cheddar cheese
I didn't mix in the cheese in the streusel, though. Instead, I sprinkled on top of it before pouring the remaining batter
Also, I replaced sour cream with low fat plain yoghurt




Please visit Louanne from Louanne's Kitchen for the full recipe. Other members bake this cake too, please drop by The Home Bakers (THB) to view

  1. Hi Alice,

    I'm happy that your family enjoyed this cake... Mine is a disappointment because I used sour cream and the texture came out be dry and crusty :(

  2. Hi Alice,
    Your cake looks really moist with fine soft texture. My daughter does not like almond extract too, but I like it. So sometimes I omit it too.
    I'm so glad that you've managed to bake this lovely cake. A good idea with the cheddar cheese!

  5. Hi Alice,
    You cake looks amazing, I love how you made in the 'deer back' tin (we call that the deer back tin here in Austria) :)
    What an interesting combination sprinkling grated cheddar cheese in the streusel, I will have to give that a try next time!
    How was the taste? a bit of a sweet and salty mix??
