Test Kitchen Tip:  To achieve the double row of streusel mixture in coffee cake, divide batter into thirds and alternate batter with streusel mixture in pan.  Note - the crumb topping will form a crunchy bottom when the cake is inverted.  To dress up the top, dust with powdered sugar or glaze as desired.
