Crumb-Topped Butter Cake

Crumb-Topped Butter Cake

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
8 ounces cream cheese
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs

1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter with cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients except topping. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan, greased on the bottom only.

Prepare crumb topping by combining all ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle on cake batter.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Serve warm or cold. Serves 18.
