The BEST New York Crumb Cake

Who doesn’t love a good coffee cake?  This one was declared by my husband recently to be “The best coffee cake ever!”  It has everything a good one needs – a nice cake texture and a high pile of buttery crumbs on top.  All this recipe needs is a good cup of hot coffee to accompany it.  It is literally ready for the oven in about 10 minutes!

New York Crumb Cake

2 tablespoons canola oil, plus more for pan
4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting pan
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp pure vanilla
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled
Confectioners sugar for dusting

  1.  Place rack in center of oven, and preheat to 325 degrees.  Lightly brush a 9 x 12 1/2 ” baking pan with oil. Dust with flour and tap to remove excess.  Set aside.  In a medium bowl, sift together 1 1/2 cups flour, the granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.  In a second bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, canola oil and vanilla.  Using a rubber spatula, fold dry ingredients into egg mixture.
  2. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan and set aside.  In a medium bowl, combine the remaining flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Pour melted butter over flour mixture and toss with a rubber spatula until large crumbs form.
  3. Sprinkle crumbs  over batter and bake, rotating pan after 10 minutes.  Continue baking until a tester comes out clean, about 10 minutes more.
  4. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool.  Dust with confectioners sugar.  Using a serrated knife or bench scraper, cut into 3-inch squares and serve.  This can can be stored, refrigerated in an airtight pan for up to 3 days.
