If you want to make this cake even more special, consider adding a streusel topping made of brown sugar, flour, and butter. Simply sprinkle it over the top of the cake before baking for an extra crunch.
For a healthier version, you can substitute the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour and reduce the sugar by half. You can also add chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts for an extra crunch.
This cake is perfect for any occasion, whether it’s a family gathering or a holiday celebration. It’s easy to make and will impress your guests with its delicious taste and aroma.
