Christmas Breakfast: Orange Streusel Coffee Cake

As Christmas is only a week away, you probably have Christmas breakfast all figured out, right?!?
Then again, maybe you are not a planner, and you are still looking for just the right dish....
If that's you, then I've got a recipe for you today!

This coffee cake is deliciously fruity.
It can be made the night before and eaten at room temperature on Christmas morning, or it can be whipped up first thing Christmas morning and be baking while the present-opening is going on!
