  • Summary

    My dad grew up in the Bronx of the 1920s and was very fond of the yeasty crumb cakes found in many German-Jewish bakeries there. He calls the moist, tender cakes "crumb buns" and loves to eat them with a cup of coffee.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (1/4-ounces) package active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
    • 1 cup warm whole milk (105115°F)
    • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 3 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    • 2 large eggs, at room temperature for 30 minutes
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, cut into tablespoon pieces and softened slightly
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
