Copycat Entenmann’s Crumb Coffee Cake

Not Entirely Average

Former Tri-Stater’s like me appreciate this copycat Entenmann’s Crumb Coffee Cake recipe, a fabulously classic New York treat!

The New York crumb cake famous since its invention in 1898 is known to millions as the perfect complement to a cup of coffee. This family favorite has generations of fans.


– dark brown sugar – ground cinnamon – salt – butter – all-purpose flour

Begin by melting two sticks of unsalted butter in a saucepan.


Use a silicone pastry brush to grease the bottom and sides of the cake pan with just a bit of the butter as it melts.


In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and Kosher salt stirring well. Scrape into the barrel of a food processor. Add melted butter.


Add the flour and pulse until large clumps form, about 4 to 6 pulses. Spill the cinnamon sugar clumps out into a bowl and use your hands to squeeze bits of the mixture together.


Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove the prepared cake pan from the refrigerator. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
