  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

  6. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread half of the crumb topping evenly over the batter.
  7. Pour the remaining batter on top and finish by spreading the rest of the crumb topping.
  8. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
