Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Coat a 12 x 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. To prepare crumb base, stir together flour and salt. Add butter and cut into flour with a pastry blender or two knives until the consistency of medium-fine meal. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon; stir well.
  3. To prepare topping, transfer 4 cups crumb base to a medium bowl. Add melted butter; stir only until blended. Fluff mixture with fingers to make coarse, buttery crumbs.
  4. Add ginger, nutmeg, cloves and baking soda to remaining crumb base; stir well. Add buttermilk, egg and vanilla; beat to make a smooth, thick batter.
  5. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Sprinkle topping evenly over batter.
  6. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, until topping is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
  7. Dust top of cake with powdered sugar, if using. Serve warm or at room temperature.
