Equipment

  • 13x9x2-inch pan

Ingredients

  • CAKE:
  • ½ cup butter
  • cups cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 eggs
  • CRUMBS:
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • DUSTING:
  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • CRUMBS: In a small bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, melt the butter. Remove from the heat. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Add the CRUMBS dry ingredients mixture to the melted butter and vanilla extract pan.
  • With a heavy spoon stir just until moistened. Set aside.
  • CAKE: In a large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter on medium speed.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, mixing it well.
  • Add the milk and beat just until smooth.
  • Add the eggs and beat for one more minute.
  • Pour the batter into an ungreased 13x9x2” pan.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and gently sprinkle the crumbs on top of the cake batter.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes more or until a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake pan to a wire rack and let it cool completely.
  • DUSTING: Use a sieve to dust the top of the crumbs with confectioner’s sugar after the cake has completely cooled.
  • Store the cake covered on top of the counter.

EXTRA TIP:

You can add jam in this coffee cake if you want.  After 15 minutes of baking time, just  spread warmed jam on top of the cake.  I use about a cup of jam only over half the cake since I know people who like it and some who don't.
