This cake is also great for the cake part of Pineapple Upside Down Cake; just don't take the 1/2 cup of crumbs out when making Pineapple Upside Down Cake.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease one 13 x 9 inch cake pan or two 8 inch round cake pans.
  2. Mix sugar and flour together. With two knives or a pastry blender cut the shortening into the flour and sugar until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs (as if you were making pie dough). Reserve 1/2 cup of this mixture as crumbs for top of cake.
  3. To the remaining flour mixture stir in the baking powder, eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix well. Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over top.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes (35 minutes if using two 8 inch round cake pans) or until center of cake springs back when lightly touched or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

The "cake" part was good, however, the crumb topping needs much improvement. More butter is needed (which I melted instead of crumbled) and I used light brown sugar instead of the white. Be sure to add the cinnamon to taste. (we enjoy a lot more) Also a nice sprinkling of confectioners sugar over the top once it's cooled adds a nice touch.

This cake is delicious. After reading the one review about not enough crumbs, I kept out an extra 1/4 cup for crumbs. It is moist and am proud to say after 40+ years I finally have a perfect Crumb Cake Recipe!! Thank you!!

The cake part was too much with not enough crumbs. However slight adjustments would produce a great crumb cake. The cake portion was moist and flavorful. My husband loved it with the adjustments!
