Streusel Topping:

  • cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup cold butter


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup cold butter

  • 1 egg

  • ¾ cup milk, or as needed

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.

  2. Make streusel topping: Combine sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

  3. Make cake: Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk together egg and milk in a separate bowl; stir in vanilla. Pour egg mixture into crumb mixture; mix just until moistened. Spread into the prepared pan and sprinkle with streusel topping.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool before slicing.
