Cinnamon Crumb Cake

cinnamon coffee cake

2 cup(s) flour
3/4 cup(s) sugar
2 tablespoon(s) sugar
1 tablespoon(s) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
1/2 cup(s) vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup(s) milk
2 tablespoon(s) butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs ( I just use my stand mixer ). Put 1/2 cup of the mixture in a small bowl, stir in remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon, and set aside. Stir egg and milk into remaining flour mixture.
Spoon batter into the prepared pan, and smooth the surface. Pour melted butter over the top. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over the butter. Bake the cake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes.

I double the recipe and my family loves the crumb cake. Also, I mix in some of the cinnamon mixture in the cake part.
I hope you enjoy it
