And here’s New York Style Crumb Cake!

Here is the recipe for the New York Style Crumb Cake from yesterday’s brunch. It is from Chloe’s Vegan Desserts by Chloe Coscarelli. This is definitely my new favorite baking book!

Crumb topping:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup soy or almond milk
1/2 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon white or apple-cider vinegar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

To make the crumb topping:
In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the melted vegan butter and toss with 2 forks, as if you were tossing salad, until it appears crumbly. The crumbs should be the size of small peas.

To make the cake: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease an 8-inch square pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together nondairy milk, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until just combined. Do not over mix.

Fill the prepared pan with batter and evenly sprinkle with the crumb topping. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry with a few crumbs clinging to it. Let cool, and EAT!

*for a gluten-free cake , substitute gluten-free all-purpose flour plus 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free All-Purpose flour is a great product. For a gluten-free crumb topping, substitute with gluten-free flour.
