Topping option #2

Spread the crumb topping evenly over the top of the cake in the baking pan..
Bake for 45 minutes until the top is completely set and lightly browned.
Remove the cake from the oven and let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes. This is important because as the cake cools, the crumble topping with become firm and will not fall off when you turn the cake over.
To remove the cake from the pan, place a sheet of wax paper over a baking rack. Place the lined rack over the top of the cake. Turn the cake upside down onto the wax paper. Pull the pan off of the cake. Place a second baking rack on top of the overturned cake. Lift both racks and turn them over. Remove the top rack and take off the wax paper.
In order for the crumb topping to work the butter must be very cold.
