Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake
Moist, buttery cinnamon coffee cake ribboned with a gooey cinnamon middle and topped with a crumbly streusel. Nothing better than a thick slice of this cake with your morning or afternoon coffee.
For the streusel:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (or light)
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
For the cake:
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup sour cream
Prepare the streusel
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together. Add the melted butter and mix with a fork until the mixture is uniformly moistened and crumbs form. Set aside.
Prepare the cake:
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time until combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as necessary. Add the vanilla extract. On low speed, add the flour mixture, alternating it with the sour cream, ending with the flour. Do not overmix.
Place half of the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. The batter will be thick. Sprinkle half of the streusel mixture evenly over the batter. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth it into an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining streusel mixture evenly on top of the cake. Gently press down so the crumbs will stick to the batter.
Bake the cake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Place the cake on a wire rack to cool completely.
