Cousin Linda's Crumb Cake

This is so quick, simple and tasty! This is wonderful for breakfast when you have overnight guests or a nice treat at brunch. The crumbs are the best part! I wish I had a piece now with my coffee!

Cake:
1 box of Ducan Hines yello cake mix
1 1/3 cups of water
3 eggs

Crumbs:
3 sticks of sweet butter, melted
3 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of salt

In a large bowl beat cake mix, water and eggs until smooth. pour into a greased and floured 13x9 pan. Bake 20-25 min. or until center is firm. While baking prepare the crumbs. Melt butter and add remaining ingredients to it. Mix together with your hands to form crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over the cake and bake again for another 20 min. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool.

Dare I admit that I will make a batch of the crumbs only one day and eat it ALL?!
