Spoon half of the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of the streusel. Top with remaining batter and streusel. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 30-35 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool completely. To prepare the glaze, in a cup, stir together confectioners' sugar and orange juice till smooth. Turn the cake out onto a serving plate, placing it right side up. Drizzle with the glaze.
