Coffee Cake with Crumb Topping


This is a copy cat recipe I have had for a long time and really like it every time I make it. My hubby who has an affinity for sweet breakfast foods really likes it too. It is supposed to be the coffee cake recipe for Starbucks Coffee Cake. I have not had Starbucks coffee cake but I may have to venture out and get some to compare!


Box Yellow Cake Mix (plus ingredients on back of box)
2 Sticks cold salted 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 mix according to directions on box. Spray 9X13 pan with non-stick spray. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until center is just barely set.

WHILE the cake is baking, prepare crumb topping. In large bowl combine butter, flour, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla until all crumbly.

IMMEDIATELY after cake is removed from oven, break crumb topping into marble size pieces with fingers and sprinkle over top. Put back in the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes (topping will begin to look a little less wet/raw). Let the cake cool fully and the then dust with powdered sugar.

CUT into squares and serve.

This didn't last long at our house before our boys were born. J has the some affinity for sweet breakfast foods so if you don't claim your squares they will be gone in a blink!
