Recipe for Lubeley's Deep Crumb Coffee Cake?

I'm from St. Louis. There was a bakery called Lubeley's that makes the most fabulous deep crumb coffee cake. Does anyone have a recipe that is even close to that? I ordered it a couple times, but wasn't too fresh when it was delivered.


I am really missing this, especially those crumbs that were deeper than the cake.

This cake is half crumbs and half cake. I don't know if it's like the one you remember, but it sure is good. One of my cousins served this at a family gathering about 25 years ago. I asked her for the recipe, which she got from her sister, also my cousin (of course). So, I have always thought of it as "Cousins Crumb Cake".


Cousins Crumb Cake

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Grease a 9 x 14 or 9 x 13 baking or roasting pan. Or use vegetable spray.

In a Large mixing bowl cream:
2 eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
½ pound softened margarine (2 sticks)

Stir together in another bowl or large measuring cup:
3 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder

Stir together in another cup:
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk

Add the flour mixture to the creamed ingredients alternately with the vanilla mixture.

Mix together with a large wooden spoon, pour into greased baking pan, and set aside.

In the same Large bowl (no need to wash first) mix:
2 ¼ cups flour
2 cups sugar
8 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ pound margarine (2 sticks) (melted - warm but not hot)

Mix all ingredients together and crumble with hands onto cake batter, covering entire cake with crumbs.


Bake in 400° F oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Optional: Shake sifted powdered sugar over cooled cake.
