I had some leftover crumb topping from my Cranraisin Eggnog Muffins that I wanted to use up. I also had some pears and ricotta cheese that was about to go bad so I decided to make this coffee cake. I listed the measurements and instructions for the streusel topping but didn’t use it. Feel free to use this one or the topping recipe from the Cranraisin Eggnog Muffins. Both are delicious! But whatever you do, be sure to use pear brandy for that extra pear flavor in the coffee cake. If you don’t have pear brandy, regular brandy will do too.
