My husband and my little boy are gone on a boys only trip to a forest service cabin and my man child is at school. So on this gray day, I am home listening to music and totally spoiling myself. I have a crumb cake in the oven and a cup of tea in hand and just got off the phone with a sweet friend. I have plans to go to dinner tonight with girlfriends. This feels decadent. My boys gave me a Kitchenaid mixer for Mother's Day. A gorgeous red one! I have wanted one for ages and I am loving it! I made cream filled cupcakes last week and now this crumb cake that is in the oven. And since I didn't save any of the info about the cupcakes and the coffee cake is in the oven now, I will write about that…
Sugar, flour, cinnamon, butter, what could be better?
Isn't this just a thing of beauty?
Mix mix mix.
Blend, combine, mix, incorporate etc.
Butter pan, add batter, add topping, bake. Wait and write blog post while waiting.
Recipe for cake.
1 1/2 cup Full fat greek yogurt
big splash of vanilla
2/3 cup brown sugar lightly packed
1/3 cup white sugar
pinch of salt
2 1/2 cups gf flour mix (I used Namaste)
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cubes (8tbsp) mostly melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 with rack in the middle. Line the bottom of a square baking dish with parchment and lightly butter grease the sides. Mix eggs, yogurt, vanilla and sugar then add dry ingredients and mix again. Add butter last and mix until just combined. Pour batter into pan and top with crumb topping. Bake for 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Recipe for topping
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 stick mostly melted butter
1/4 cup gf flour
Pinch of nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon or more if you like it
Mix it all together and use fingers to crumble it on top of cake batter. Lick fingers when done.
And there you have it! Nom nom nom.
Excuse me, must stuff face.
