Crumb Coffee Cake (like Hostess crumb cakes)

The Grandkids and I made this IT IS WONDERFUL!!!! this is definately a keeper!!!

1 box pudding-in-the-mix yellow cake (must contain pudding)

CRUMBS
1  cup butter, softened
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
3 tablespoons cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla

Prepare the pudding-in-the-mix cake as directed on the box (usually 3 eggs, veggie oil, water). Pour into a greased/floured 9 x 13 pan.

Bake, as directed, but it is important to take it out 10 minutes before it is completed!( I use a glass 9x13 and bake for 25 minutes the first time and 15 minutes after you put the topping on)

While cake is baking, mix all the crumb ingredients into a very large crumb consistency.

Gently place the crumbs on the not-so-done cake. (It's OK if they fall into the batter). Warning: This will be lots of crumbs; it will most likely end up being a heavier crumb layer than cake...that is why my friends and family like it so much! (I try to put as much as possible on the outside edges and less in the middle)

Put the cake back into the oven for the additional 15 minutes (check with toothpick in middle)

Once cool, sprinkle with lots of powdered sugar (or prepare a simple glaze to drizzle over crumbs).
(I use a powdered sugar, vanilla and water glaze)
