Starbucks Copycat Coffee Cake

Now I know some will find this hard to believe, but although I have been to Starbucks with friends, I've never had any coffee there and never eaten anything there. I have however heard many, many friends rave about their baked goods. So, when I came across this copycat recipe for their coffee cake, I knew I had to try it. It's amazingly easy and smells absolutely delicious!

1 box Yellow Cake Mix (plus ingredients on back of box)

1 cup butter

2 1/4 cups flour

1 1/2 T cinnamon

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 1/2 T powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare cake mix in large bowl according to directions on box. Spray 9 x 13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until center is just barely set. While cake is baking, prepare crumb topping. In large bowl of electric mixer combine, butter, flour, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla until all crumbly. Immediately after cake is removed from oven, break crumb topping into marble size pieces with fingers, sprinkling over top. Put back in oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes when topping will begin to look a little less wet. Let cool fully then dust with powdered sugar. Cut into squares and serve.
