I know, I know. Another coffee cake recipe. But you guys! This one is my absolute favorite! I promise. And it’s so simple and so delish. I woke up this morning like, “I must bake something today.” And I always have these ingredients on hand. So, get the coffee brewing and let’s make this cake…
What you will need:
An 8 x 8 inch square bake pan sprayed with a non-stick spray (you could use a 9 x 13 but I like my crumb topping sky high so the smaller the better)
For the cake:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the crumb topping:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
To make the cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a smaller bowl, mix egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Set aside to make the topping.
To make the crumb topping
In a large bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour in melted butter and stir until combined and clumps begin to form. Sprinkle evenly over the cake batter.
Bake for about 30 minutes. Let cool on wire rack. Once cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
I mean… just look at that crumb!!
