Ingredients:

10 tablespoons of butter at room temperature
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of sugar
3 large eggs at room temperature
1 & 1/4 cups of sour cream (I used Greek Style Plain Yogurt)
1 teaspoon of good vanilla extract

Preheat oven to: 350 degrees
Butter you 13″X9″ baking pan and lightly flour

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after adding each one. Now add your vanilla. Add your flour and sour cream or yogurt until the batter is blended nicely.

Spread the batter into the pan evenly.
It is Crumb time now!

Ingredients:
3 cups of cake crumbs firmly packed
1 cup of all purpose flour
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 teaspoon of good cinnamon
1 teaspoon of salt (if you are using unsalted butter)
1 3/4 sticks of butter (use the other piece to butter the pan) (softened overnight)

In a large bowl mix together the cake crumbs, flour and sugar until completely mixed. Now cut your butter through the mixture with a fork or pastry cutter. You will see large crumb form and of course you can use your clean washed hands and form also. Now take these yummy crumbs and spread evenly ontop of the cake batter and pop in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until done. Of course the time depends on your oven. Just give it a check.

Now it is time for the cake to cool a bit. This gives you a little time to whip up a simple but delicious glaze.

Ingredients:
1 cup of confectioners sugar
heavy cream.

Put your confectioners sugar in a bowl and whisk in a little bit of cream at a time till you get the perfect consistency. Now drizzle over the cake and it is ready to serve on a pretty plate and a touch of garnish. The beauty of this crumb cake…It stays fresh for a good week…ENJOY. Next time give chocolate crumbs a try.
