  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 large egg plus 1 large yolk

Using a stand mixer, mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt on low speed just until combined. With mixer running, add softened butter 1 piece at a time. Continue beating until mixture is moist crumbs and well blended, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add buttermilk, egg, yolk and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Scrape down bowl as necessary.
Transfer batter to foil lined pan. Using spatula to spread out evenly. Break apart crumb topping in pieces over batter. Top evenly. Bake until crumbs are golden and toothpick inserted comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes. Let cool on wire rack for 30 minutes. Remove from pan and dust with confectioner's sugar.
