Crumb Coffee Cake


                 If you love coffee cake as much as I do, you will love this delicious from scratch
                 cake. Light, moist and extra good served with a great cup of coffee. The topping
                 is the real winner, for me. I do double the topping but you do not have to. Either
                 way you will love this. Great for potlucks, church or any day of the week.

                                                                  Crumb Coffee Cake

                                                               1/2 cup butter, softened
                                                               1 ( 8oz) package cream cheese, softened
                                                               1 1/3 cups sugar
                                                               2 eggs
                                                               2 cups all-purpose flour
                                                               2 teaspoons baking powder
                                                               1/2 teaspoon baking soda
                                                               1/2 teaspoon salt
                                                               1/2 cup milk
                                                               1 teaspoon vanilla extract
                                                          

               1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed
               with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and
               fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears.

               2) Sift flour and next 3 ingredients, add to the butter mixture alternate with milk
               beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until combined

               after each addition. Stir in vanilla and almond extracts. Pour batter into a -
               greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with crumb topping.

               3) Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until done. Let cool 20 min before serving.

                                                                    Crumb Topping

                                                                  1/2 cup sugar
                                                                  1/2 cup flour
                                                                  1/4 cup butter
                                                                  1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

                     Stir together, flour, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter with a fork until
                     mixture resembles small peas. Note that is you like to double the topping
                     you can.

       This is so so good!! It's going to go so well with your morning coffee, tea or cocoa.

  26. What I like about this recipe is that the cake is served in squares. Not to big not to small. The perfect portion. The cream cheese might be another reason.
