New York-Style Crumb Cake


1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted, warm
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/3 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Butter 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish; set aside.
2. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into medium bowl.
3. Using electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until smooth. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
4. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
5. Add sour cream and vanilla extract and beat just until blended.
6. Add flour mixture in 3 additions, beating just until incorporated after each addition.
7. Transfer cake batter to prepared baking dish; spread batter evenly with rubber spatula.
8. Make topping: Mix both sugars, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl and whisk to blend. Add warm melted butter and stir to blend. Add flour and toss with fork until moist clumps form (topping mixture will look slightly wet.) ** I cut this recipe in half and it made plenty of crumbs for the topping.
9. Squeeze small handfuls of topping together to form small clumps. Drop topping clumps evenly over cake batter, covering completely (topping will be thick).
10. Bake cake about 1 hour, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean and topping is deep golden brown and slightly crisp.
11. Cool cake in dish on rack at least 30 minutes.
12. Cut cake into squares and serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
