NY Style Crumb Cake

Here in NY, you can go into practically any convenience store and see Crumb Cake, which is pretty much a small amount of cake with a ton of crumbs on top – and it is extremely popular. I decided to add a bit of streusel in the center of mine to add another dimension, but still have a ton of crumbs on top.  This makes an 8″X8″ pan.  If you use a 9″ pan, you’ll bake for shorter time.  You don’t need any special equipment, just a bowl and whisk!

Whisk into a bowl:
½ cup Sugar
2 Eggs, whole
¾ cup Milk
¼ cup Butter, melted, cooled
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


Stir in:
1 ½ cups AP Flour
1 Tabl. Baking Powder
½ tsp. Salt

Pour ½ batter into a greased 8” square pan.   Sprinkle with streusel.  Pour remaining batter over.  Top with crumbs.  Bake in 350 degree oven for 55 -60 min. or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center.

STREUSEL:
Combine and work together with fork or fingers:
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Cinnamon
3 Tabl. Butter, softened


CRUMB TOPPING:
Combine and work together with fork or fingers:
1 ½ cups AP Flour
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 cup Butter, softened

Cut and serve warm.  Be sure to wrap leftovers tightly with plastic wrap as it tends to dry out.
