I have been looking for this type of streusel topping for quite a while. My grand-mother used to make the best topping and this is as close as I am going to get. She taught me how to make many recipes, but for some reason, the streusel was not one of them. Thanks for a great recipe.

I was a little overwhelmed by the quantity of this at first but froze it as suggested. It really has been a tasty, convenient, and versatile addition to many of my baked goods. Awesome!

So simple and delicious. Jan, I love your recipes. They are so easy to put together, have ingredients I usually always have on hand, and we've loved every recipe of yours that we have tried - personal and published. I scaled this way back and used on a store bought coffee cake. The topping was better than the cake! I just made your personal recipe 'Jan's Maple Coffee Cake' and realized the topping is very similar, minus the white sugar, so I know it will be a hit. I like the idea that you can make up a big batch of this and keep it handy in the freezer. Thanks for sharing!

Such a fantastic crumb topping! I used it on small (pot pie size) cherry pies. Huge hit! Love the idea of keeping it in the freezer until needed.
