I have been making this cake since 1989. I got it from a local newspaper.

It is always a hit whenever I make it or take it somewhere. It is my go-to recipe when a host requests a dessert.

Try it...you'll like it!! :)

How to Make Lots-Of-Crumbs Coffee Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    For topping: Combine flour and sugars, and ground cinnamon, in a large mixing bowl and toss lightly to combine. Pour in melted butter and stir lightly with a fork to form crumbs. To make large crumbs, squeeze fistfuls of mixture together. (This is what I do). Set aside.
  2. For cake: Sift baking powder and baking soda with the flour. Add sugar and salt in a medium bowl and toss lightly.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, stir together melted butter and egg. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Mixture will be thick.
  4. Pat dough in a 9 x 13 inch buttered baking dish. Sprinkle crumbs over dough (there will be a lot of crumbs). Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
  5. Cool cake on rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve. Enjoy!!
