How To Make thea’s crumb cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 13x9" pan.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on low speed until combined. I usually add a couple of drops of lemon oil, too. Increase to high speed and beat for additional 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • 3
    While the cake is baking, prepare crumb topping by combining flour, sugar and cinnamon. Add butter and mix well by hand. (I use my hands to do this-a little messy but effective.)

    Crumble this mixture over the cake and bake for an additional 10 minutes. When cake is cool, dust with confectioners sugar.
