Butter Pecan Crumb Cake

6 Tablespoons Salted Butter, Room Temperature
3/4 cups Granulated Sugar
1 whole Egg
1 whole Egg White
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1- 1/2 teaspoon Butter Extract
23 cups Sour Cream
1- 1/4 cup Cake Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoons Kosher Salt
1 cup Pecans, Chopped
1 cup All-purpose Flour
1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
1/2 teaspoons Salt
5 Tablespoons Salted Butter, Cold And Cut Into Small Cubes
23 cups Brown Sugar, Packed
2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9x9 square pan or round pan (like a pie dish). Set aside. For the cake: Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment for 4 to 5 minutes, until light. Add the eggs 1 at a time, then add the vanilla, butter extract and sour cream. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture into the batter until just combined. Finish stirring with a spatula to be sure the batter is completely mixed. Fold in pecans. Set aside. For the streusel: Whisk the flour, sugar and salt together in a large mixing bowl until combined. Cut in the butter in very small pieces. If you dont have a pastry cutter (I dont), you can use your hands or mix with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Work the brown sugar and cinnamon into the flour mixture, or squeeze the mixture with your hands, almost like Play Dough, for 3-5 minutes. I prefer to use my hands. You want the mixture to look like one big brown sugar clump. Thats how you get the larger crumbs. Break the crumbs into chunks and sprinkle over the batter, pressingly lightly so they stick. Bake the cake until the center is firm and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set it on a rack. Allow to cool completely before serving, about 2 hours.
