In another bowl, whisk the oil, sugar, sour cream and creamer until combined well.
Now add this prepared liquid mixture to the dry ingredient bowl.
Press the streusel layer gently so that it settles on the batter well or Use a skewer or knife to swirl the streusel in a bit so that it doesn’t sink while baking.
Scoop the remaining batter on the top as shown in the photo above .
Spread the batter gently without disturbing the streusel layer in the middle.
Now top the cake batter with the remaining streusel mixture.
