Coffee Crumb Cake

I love coffee cake! Don’t you? 

This coffee cake recipe is so yummy and I’ve finally perfected it. Unlike average coffee cake, this one has a cinnamon layer in the middle. It’s perfect late night dessert. I’m picturing it now, cozyed up on the couch with a blanket, a good movie, a cup of tea and nice big piece of this coffee cake. 😍

The strudel on top really brings it together. Try it out and enjoy!! 
CAKE

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

pinch salt

3/4 cup milk
FILLING

3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
TOPPING

5 tablespoon butter, softened
3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon
INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350F.

In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar, scraping down the sides occasionally. Add the vanilla and egg, mix in.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add one half of it to the mixer, and when mostly combined, add the milk. Once the milk is mostly incorporated, add the rest of the flour.

To make filling: in a small bowl, pinch together the softened butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon until soft crumbs form.

To make topping: use a fork to combine the butter, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon until coarse crumbs form 

Grease a 9×9 baking pan. Pour in ½ of cake batter, and spread to all four corners. Sprinkle the filling over top, then pour in remaining cake batter, and spread carefully across the top, disturbing the filling layer as little as possible (an offset spatula works well for this).

Sprinkle the topping over the top and press lightly so it adheres.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool to warm on wire rack before serving.
