Servings 4 mini loaves


For the streusel:

  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 level teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter cubed

For the bread:

  • 1 white cake mix
  • 1 Egg
  • 8 oz. sour cream or plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the streusel ingredients in a bowl.
  • Using a fork, your fingers, or an electric mixer, combine the streusel ingredients. It should look like course sand.
  • Set the streusel aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, egg, sour cream, melted butter, and vanilla.
  • Combine quick bread ingredients with an electric mixer, scraping sides and bottom of bowl.
  • Beat until smooth.
  • Fill four mini loaf pans with the batter and spread to the sides of the pans. Batter will be stiff. (It's helpful to use a large cookie scoop to put the batter into the pans.)
  • Top each loaf with streusel.
  • Bake for 40 minutes.
  • Bread is done when a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool, slice, and serve.


The mini loaf pans I used measure 3.5 in. x 5 in. x 2.25 in.
I prepared my baking pans with Baker's Joy.
