This is an easy, delicious coffee cake for breakfast or supper or with coffee.

Sour Cream Crumb Cake

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted (and slightly cooled)
1 tsp. vanilla

Crumb Topping:
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp. butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8"x 8" pan.

Sift together the dry ingredients.

In another bowl combine sour cream, eggs, butter, and vanilla, mixing well.

Add the sifted ingredients to the sour cream mixture.
Stir just until all the dry ingredients are moistened.
Batter will be lumpy. (I used the KitchenAid mixer so my batter was not lumpy)
Spread in prepared pan.

Make crumb topping:
Blend all ingredients until combined and sprinkle over the cake batter in
the pan.

Bake at 350 F. for about 25-30 minutes or until browned and cake is beginning to pull away from sides of pan.

Let cake cool in pan. Serve while slightly warm or cold.
