Before starting, preheat oven to 350ºF. Remove 6 tbsp butter from the fridge to soften. Grease a 9x5-inch metal baking loaf pan with 1 tsp softened butter. Line the base and sides of the loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang off the sides. (TIP: The overhang will make it easy for you to remove the coffee cake from the pan later.)
Whisk together 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, half the cinnamon and 1/8 tsp salt in a medium bowl. Add 2 tbsp softened butter. Using your fingertips, mix dry ingredients with butter until pea-sized clumps form. Set aside. (NOTE: This is your cinnamon streusel.)Sift 2 cups flour, 2 tsp baking powder, remaining cinnamon and 1/2 tsp salt into another medium bowl, then whisk to combine.
