New Jersey Crumb Cake

                                 Recipe adapted from comfycuisine
I saw this coffee cake yesterday and had to make it right away.  I am so glad I didn't wait a day longer, this is amazing!! 
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 chopped walnuts
  • Confectioner's sugar for dusting
I made a Maple Glaze but it really doesn't need a glaze, it was more for show.
1/4 powdered sugar
1 to 2 table maple syrup.
Mix together and drizzle on top of coffee cake.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8 x 8 baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside. In a medium bowl, sift together 1-1/2 cups flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. In a second bowl, whisk together egg, milk, canola oil and vanilla. Fold dry ingredients into egg mixture.

Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. In a medium bowl, combining remaining 2-1/2 cups flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour melted butter over flour mixture and toss together until large crumbs form. Sprinkle crumbs over batter.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Dust liberally with confectioner's sugar. Cut into squares.
