Crumb Coffeecake

Ok, so when you look at the amount of butter in here, you know it can't be taste.  But occasionally (house guests are a good excuse), it's nice to treat yourself.  So with family in town for graduation this past weekend, I whipped up a batch of my favorite coffee cake and thought I'd share.  

2 1/2 c. flour
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1c. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. almond extract

Whisk together dry ingredients.  Melt butter and add extracts to it.  Pour over dry mixture and mix until all butter is absorbed.  

8 tblsp. butter
1 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. sour cream
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder

Cream butter and sugar until light an fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time, beating bwtween additions.  Beat in vanilla and sour cream.  In separate bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder.  Add to butter/sour cream mixture, stirring until even.  Pour into greased baking pan.  Crumble crumb mixture  over top until batter is completely covered.  Bake in 9x13 pan for 30-35 min on 350 degrees.  

This recipe has A LOT of crumb.  My sister suggested layering some into the batter, which I think I might try next time.
