This is absolutely the best crumb cake you will ever eat! I make this a lot at home on the weekends for the family and it is a must have at our annual family July 4th weekend get together. It usually lasts a day and then we are making another one! It is sure to be one of your favorites as well. I hope you will try it and let us know how much you love it! 🙂
Makes one 9 x 12 1/2 cake
2 Tablespoons canola oil, plus more for pan
4 Cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
1/2 Cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 Teaspoons baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Large egg
1/2 Cup milk
2 Teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 Cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 Teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter melted and cooled
Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place rack in center of oven. Lightly brush cake pan with canola oil, dust with flour and tap off excess. Set aside.
In a medium bowl sift together, 1 1/2 cups flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a second bowl, whisk together egg, milk, canola oil and vanilla. Using a rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into egg mixture.
Spread batter evenly into prepared pan and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine remaining 2 1/2 cups flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour melted butter over flour mixture and mix with your hands (I find this the best way to incorporate the ingredients).
Sprinkle crumbs over batter.
Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes then rotate and bake for another 10 minutes. Insert toothpick to make sure it comes out clean and it is done!
Dust with confectioners’ sugar and enjoy! Yum, yum, yum!
