Crumb Coffee Cake

Crumb Coffee Cake created by MamaGanoush

I found this terrific coffeecake recipe in the "King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion" and have submitted it nearly exactly as they printed it because it's so darn good, there's nothing to change! My 22-YO dieting daughter got mad at me for making this, it caused her to go off her diet. This is one good coffeecake and you probably have all of the ingredients right at hand. Serving amounts are approximate, it depends on what pan size you use.

  • Preheat oven to 350° Grease (your choice) 2 8-inch round pans or 1 9x13-inch pan.
  • The Crumb: in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon Melt the butter in microwave or small saucepan and add the extracts to it.
  • Pour the melted butter into the flour mixture and mix until all the butter is absorbed and you have a uniformly moistened crumb mixture; set aside while you make the cake batter.
  • The Cake: In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add the eggs one at a time, and beat between additions.
  • Scrape down the mixing bowl, then beat in the vanilla and sour cream.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder together; add to the butter/sour cream mixture, mixing until evenly combined.
  • Pour the batter into the greased pan (s) of your choice, crumble the crumb mixture over the top, until the batter is completely covered.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes for the 8-inch round pans, or 30-35 minutes for the 9x13 pan.
  • Bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove cake from the oven and cool on a rack; dust the top with confectioners' sugar, if desired.

    OMG---This smells like heaven--it is delicious and sooo easy to make. Only change I made was add a few frozen blueberries after it was in the pan. My family loves it. Too bad about the calories (butter) cut some place else. Bill K.

    This recipe was a hit! I subbed cream cheese for the sour cream and tried the frozen blueberry trick that another reviewer did. It was fabulous! The dough was difficult to "pour" into the pan-- there was nothing liquid-y about it. So I pressed the dough into the 9x13 pan. Wonderful breakfast or snack! For a high-end treat I'm going to drizzle it with a powdered sugar glaze next time.
