  1. Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan and set it aside.
  2. For the streusel mixture, in a medium bowl, stir together 3 tablespoons of flour, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, and the ground cinnamon.
  3. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 3 tablespoons of butter until the mixture becomes crumbly. Then, stir in 3/4 cup of the chopped nuts and set the streusel mixture aside.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. In a large bowl, beat the 3/4 cup of softened butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for about 30 seconds.
  6. Beat in the granulated sugar and the 1/2 cup of maple sugar or brown sugar until the ingredients are well combined.
  7. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  8. In a separate large bowl, stir together the 2-1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, and the baking powder.
  9. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and vanilla.
  10. Alternately add the flour mixture and the sour cream mixture to the butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition, just until combined.
  11. Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan, then sprinkle it with the streusel mixture.
  12. Spoon the remaining batter over the streusel mixture.
  13. Bake the cake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  14. Allow the cake to cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove it from the pan.
  15. For the icing, in a small bowl, stir together the sifted powdered sugar and the pure maple syrup until smooth. Drizzle the icing over the warm or cooled cake.
  16. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of nuts on top.
  17. Serve the Vermont Streusel Cake warm or cooled.
