1 yellow cake mix
4 eggs
2/3 c. milk
2/3 c. canola oil

2 sticks butter
1 stick margarine
2/3 c. white sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
4 c. flour
2 T. cinnamon
2 T. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour one 18"x12" pan or 2 11 1/2x9" pans.

Beat batter ingredients together for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan. Bake 12-17 minutes. The middle should still be a little soft. Cool for 10 minutes.

While cake is baking, make crumbs by mixing all ingredients together in mixer until crumbly. Using your hands, press crumb mixture together to make firm balls, about the size of meatballs. Break off pieces of crumb ball onto top of cooled cake. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Watch that edges don't burn. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

Personal Notes:
This is a great cake for a crowd as it makes a lot! Make sure to use both butter and margarine in the crumbs, or they won't have the right consistency.
