Prepare The Coffeecake For Baking

Grease a 9×13 pan (can use slightly smaller pan like an 8×12 for “taller” piece of coffeecake, but will need to adjust cooking time slightly). Pour in the batter and spread to distribute evenly.  Sprinkle the reserved crumb/cinnamon topping evenly over the top of the batter.

Coffeecake batter is poured into a 13x9" greased pan, for baking.

Streusel topping is added to the surface of the coffeecake batter.

Bake And Serve The Old-Fashioned Crumb Coffeecake!

Bake the old-fashioned crumb coffeecake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in middle of coffeecake comes out clean. TIP: Check the coffeecake at the 30 minute mark- mine only took 30 minutes to be fully baked! Be careful not to overcook the coffeecake or it can become dry.

When done, remove pan to a wire rack, and let the coffeecake cool before slicing and serving.

Crumb coffeecake has baked, and been cut into pieces to eat.

Recipe Notes

If you use an 8x12 pan, be sure to adjust cooking times accordingly. Batter will be "thicker", so will need a bit more time to cook through.
13x9 pan=12 servings. If you want larger portions, this recipe will serve 8-10.
