We have made the Favorite Coffee Cake many times. Yet, the topping sometimes would not cover the cake fully and was not as good as a topping I found for a New York Crumb Cake. Here I have combined the best of both recipes to come up with a great Crumble Cake.

This cake part is from the recipe for Favorite Coffee Cake. (Favorite Coffee Cake).
The Topping Part is from a recipe for Crumb Cake by David Lebovitz. (davidlebovitz.com/coffee-crumb-cake-...).

Do try this recipe for Brooklyn/New York Crumble Cake. Enjoy!

Prepare Topping: Mix together 1 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar, cinnamon & salt in a small bowl. Stir in the melted butter & vanilla until the mixture is well combined and crumbly. Set aside.

In a bowl mix the flour and baking powder. Whisk.

In another bowl, beat the shortening & sugar. Add egg and beat. Add milk and beat until well combined.

7
Sprinkle the topping evenly over batter.
