NY Style Crumb Cake

(Adapted Original Recipe from Martha Stewart Living Magazine)


  • For the crumb topping:
  • 3 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
  • For the cake:
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs plus 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 cup store-bought blueberry jam (optional) - I do not use it.
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting


Make the crumb topping: 
  1. Mix together flour, sugars, cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Pour warm melted butter over mixture, and mix using your hands until medium to large clumps form.
 Make the Cake:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2.  Butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat butter and granulated sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and yolks, 1 at a time, then vanilla. Beat in flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour. Continue to beat until well combined.
  4. Spoon batter into pan, and spread evenly using an offset spatula. Spread with jam, if using. Sprinkle crumb-topping mixture evenly over top.
  5. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Transfer pan to a wire rack. Let cake cool slightly, about 15 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve warm or at room temperature.
