When it comes to crumb, more is MORE. There's never enough of those buttery morsels bursting with brown sugar and cinnamon. This crumb cake keeps the focus on the CRUMB.
  • For the Cake:
  • 1 & ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 & ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the Super Crumb:
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 sticks butter, softened
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Liberally spray a 13x9" baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry cake ingredients (1 & ½ cups flour, the sugar, baking powder, and salt). In another medium bowl, whisk together the wet cake ingredients (the oil, egg, milk and vanilla). Gently whisk the wet into the dry mixture until the batter comes together. Pour the batter evenly into the greased pan.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the Super Crumb ingredients until the mixture just about comes together (it'll look like big clumps of crumb).
  4. Breaking up the crumb with your hand, drop heaping handfuls of the crumb evenly over the surface of the cake. Make sure to thoroughly cover the surface of the cake; any cake left uncovered by crumb will bubble up. Once the cake is smothered with crumb, bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool the cake somewhat in the pan before cutting into squares. If desired, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or cinnamon sugar, and serve warm.
