Candie's Bakery-Style Crumb Coffee Cake
- Ready In:
- 3 3⁄4 cups flour
- 1 3⁄4 cups sugar
- 1⁄4 lb butter (softened)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2 - 2⁄3 cup milk
- 1⁄4 lb butter
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 pinch salt
- confectioners' sugar (for dusting)
- Mix together in a large bowl flour, sugar, baking powder, salt; and set aside 2 cups of this mixture for the topping.
- Add butter, eggs and milk and mix well.
- Grease and flour a 13-inch rectangle baking pan.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- For Topping: Take the 2 cups of reserved flour mixture and add to the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
- Mix together with your fingers until blended and lumps begin to form when you squeeze the mixture making small pea-sized crumbs.
- (make them to your liking).
- We love HUGE crumbs on ours, so I squeeze handfuls of the mixture and let the big pieces drop off onto the cake batter and cover the surface with smaller ones as I empty the bowl.
- Cover the entire cake with crumbly mixture.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- When cooled, dust with confectioner's sugar.

What can I say, yes I made the complete recipe once, I found it also dry, but the crumb topping was to die for!!! I like the topping so much I made the dry ingredients part 4 different times now and keep a container of dry on hand! Just take out a cup or two, add the sugar and butter and use it on top of crisps, apple pies, cherries, sliced peaches...it is awesome! Like your mom, I could just eat the topping alone! Thanks for a keeper!!
I have to give credit where credit is due. This was definately very yummy!!! The cake was an excellent texture, even though I was in a pinch and used self rising flour. Oh...the crumbs were good! :) I like them big too. I would have liked if the 'crumbs' were more tender. They were sort of crisp. I will have to play with the recipe and see what I can get. But either way, I will make this over and over.

I'm a "newbee" to this site, but not to cooking. I love great food and to share recipes and this site is great! I don't know where the information of a "fry cook" came from, but I would consider myself anything else but that :) A NYC girl originally, lived in London and Canada where I am now. Met lots of interesting people along life's way who taught me a great deal and enriched my life with their knowledge of cooking. With my children now adults, the family has doubled in size and my commitment to making memories to pass down to another generation inspires me to cooking. I find cooking a creative expression of one's personality and never tire of new challenges in the kitchen.
