      When your toppings are twice the size of the cake itself, you know you've got the classic new york crumb. Very good, and very easy to make.

      Fabulous authentic NY Crumbcake!
      For those of you that are not from NY, a NY Crumbcake is usually 1/3 cake & a heavy crumb topping that is always at least 2/3 of the cake.
      Recipe change: I also add 3T sour cream to the recipe, and use melted UNSALTED SWEET butter in the cake instead of canola oil. Butter makes the cake stay fresh longer and gives a better flavor.

      In response to those who have tried using oil in the crumb topping: ICK! Don't do it!!!

      I feel that this cake comes out best baked in a 9"x9"x2" heavy aluminum cake pan. (My favorite pans are the Fatdaddios heavy professional Aluminum bakeware pans).

      Bake at 350* for 40 minutes.

      For holiday giving, beware if using the disposable pans... The pan must have a 2" side or the batter will flow out all over the bottom of your oven!

      *** This cake make a beautiful and thoughtful gift, and looks so pretty wrapped with clear gift wrap (available at Michael's Craft Store) and colorful ribbons curled with scissors***
