For the cake

  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter cut into small pieces, softened
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk cold
  • cinnamon for sprinkling
  • brown sugar for sprinkling

For the crumbs

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter melted and warm
  • 1 3/4 cups cake flour


  • Pre heat the oven to 325 F. Line a baking dish with baking paper
  • Mix brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and melted butter to make the crumb topping.
  • In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients for the cake with a whisk, except for the cinnamon and brown sugar.
  • Add butter and mix with a hand mixer on low until you get very fine crumbs.
  • Add the remaining wet ingredients and mix until smooth and fluffy.
  • Pour the batter into the baking dish and spread with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar.
  • Add a generous layer of crumb topping.
  • Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out with no wet ingredients (some crumbs might attach to the toothpick but that's fine)


You can dust with icing sugar or drizzle vanilla glaze or simply serve as is. Wait for the cake to cool before cutting and removing from the baking dish.
