Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
The Crumbs:
1 stick unsalted butter -- (1/2 cup) softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

The batter:
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 Tbl. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350. Butter 12 count muffin pan and set aside.

To make crumbs work the butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl with your fingers until the mixture forms crumbs; set aside.

For the batter, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl. Add the oil, milk, eggs and vanilla; beat vigorously with a heavy spoon just until the batter is blended. Do not overbeat.

Divide the batter between the prepared muffin pans. Scatter the crumbs over the tops, pressing them in gently. (They'll be covered heavily which is what makes them so good.)

Bake until the tops are golden and springy to the touch and the crumbs are crisp, 35-40 minutes. Cool in the pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes. If the cakes overflow a little, cut apart with a sharp knife. Unmold and serve warm or at room temperature.
