Crumb Cake

Crumb Topping:

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/8 cups butter (1 cup + 2 tablespoons), melted

In a medium bowl mix the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt together.  Add in the melted butter and vanilla and combine until you have a crumbly mixture.  Set aside.

Cake Layer:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 egg

3/4 cup milk

To make the batter.  Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.


In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Add the oil, butter, vanilla, egg and milk.  Stir together util completely combined.  Spoon the batter into the pan and smooth the top.

Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the batter and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes.

I found the minimum time baked the cake.  Check after 15 minutes.  The cake layer is very thin so it will bake up quickly!
