Does anyone have a real good tried and true recipe for a plain vanilla coffe cake with a nice crumb topping. A friend requested this and I've looked through so many recipes but can't decide which sounds best. Thanks for any help you all may give.

Hi, here's one that I've been making for years - as an interesting note, it is from a friend who is an opera singer!

Crumb topping:
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Cream butter, sugar and egg together. Mix dry ingredients, add alternately with milk to creamed mixture. Beat until smooth. Pour into greased and floured 9x9 pan.

Cut butter into dry ingredients, mix until crumbly. Spoon over batter.

Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

I can sure vouch for the recipe below. It's very good. If you want it plainer, just don't put the layer of filling in & just put it on top with the rest of the streusel.
