    33 Ways To Fill Your Life With Streusel

    In a perfect world, streusel would be sprinkled on top of everything including all of your meals, your car, and your head.

    You know about streusel. It's that magnificent crunchy and sweet topping that anoints coffee cake.

    In its basic form, streusel is made by simply mixing together butter, sugar, and flour.

    You can add lots of other things like spices, oats, chopped nuts, and even peanut butter, as in this recipe for Banana Bread with Peanut Butter Streusel pictured above.

    It can go inside a dessert...

    But usually it is just sprinkled on top, where, when baked, streusel becomes a crunchy golden miracle.

    AND there's this perfect layer between the streusel and the cake that gets especially gooey and sugary.

    It is the best. I like to call this The Layer Of Extra Delight.
