In large bowl, using an electric mixer, set on med. Speed, beat butter & sugar 
until light & fluffy.  Add eggs, mix at a time, beat well after each addition.

into egg mixture.  Spoon 1/2 of batter into tube pan.  Sprinkle with 1/2 of

even layer.  Swirl batter with a knife to  create a marble pattern.  Bake 15 min.  
Remove cake from oven &  sprinkle top with remaining streusel.  Return cake
