The new streusel cakes from the Vienna Cookie Company in Baldwin, N.Y., are defined by their fillings of fruit, chocolate or nuts, sandwiched in between a tender cookielike base and a rich crumb topping. The cakes are the owner Heidi Riegler’s refinement of the typical New York coffee shop crumb cake and can go from breakfast to dessert. They will easily accept a pouf of yogurt, whipped cream or ice cream. Ms. Riegler uses local farmers’ market peaches and blueberries in her fillings, combines chocolate chips and ganache for the chocolate flavor, and soaks pecans in Grand Marnier for another variety.
