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!

How to Make Brooklyn/New York - Crumble Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.

    Note-I used salted butter, so I skipped the added salt in the topping.
  2. Heat Oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Grease square 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Also, can use a 8 x 8 x 2 inch pan or a round layer pan 9 x 1 1/2 inches.
  4. In a bowl mix the flour and baking powder. Whisk.
  5. In another bowl, beat the shortening & sugar. Add egg and beat. Add milk and beat until well combined.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Beat vigorously for 1/2 minute. Spread in greased pan.
  7. Sprinkle the topping evenly over batter.
  8. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool. Can sprinkle with powdered sugar after cake is cooled.
