crumb cake

I have a huge pan of this goodness still and it will be breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next few days!!!  Its so good and the crumbs are ginormous!!!  Enjoy!!!

For the Cake:
1 box Pillsbury yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup water
For the Topping:
2 sticks margarine
2 sticks butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
5 1/3 cup flour
2/3 cup plus ¼ cup brown sugar
2/3 cup plus ¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2-3/4 cup confectioners sugar


For the Cake:
Prehat oven to 325ºF. Grease cookie sheet.  Add cake mix, eggs, and water to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (may also use bowl and hand mixer). Beat for 4 minutes. Pour into prepared cookie sheet, and smooth with a spatula. Bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes (remove from oven when done, but leave oven on). While it's baking, prepare crumb topping.
For the Topping:
Microwave butter and margarine in a bowl until melted (whisk together). Allow to cool and then add vanilla and almond extracts. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, and cinnamon. Cut the butter mixture into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter (or two forks) until a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle the crumb topping onto the cake and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes at 325ºF. Allow to cool completely and then sift with confectioners sugar before serving.
