oh baby - best crumb cake with huge crumbs

Oh baby - best crumb cake with huge crumbs <3

 

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix (plus ingredients on back of box)

2 Sticks cold unsalted butter

2 1/4 Cups flour

1 1/2 Tablespoons cinnamon

1 ¾ Cups brown sugar

1 1/2 Tablespoons vanilla

Powdered sugar (for dusting)

PREHEAT oven to 350.

PREPARE cake mixe in large bowl according to directions on box. I line my pan with aluminum then spray and flour a 9 x 13 pan.  Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until center is just  setting.

WHILE cakes are baking, prepare crumb topping. In large bowl of  combine, butter, flour, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla mix with your hands so you can get nice big chunks of crumbs, and so smaller ones for those who don't like big crumbs. 

IMMEDIATELY after cake is removed from oven,   sprinkling topping over top. Put back in oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes but my oven usually takes 10 minutes more because i have big crunks of the crumbs (topping will begin to look a little less wet/raw). Let cool fully.  When cake is completly cooled you can  dust with powdered sugar, using a sieve.

CUT into squares and serve. I  am asked over and over again to bring this crumb cake everywhere i go, and you would never know its comes from a box, shhh.. don't tell anyone.
