If butter is hard, warm up one stick slightly so it's easily mixable - careful not to make it too hot because you'll be adding eggs to the mix!
Add in 1 cup brown sugar
Mix it up ! (I'm fully aware that this tool is for mashing potatoes, but I definitely suggest it over a whisk for anyone who doesn't have an electric mixer !)
Crack and mix one egg at a time !
Lay out some wax paper to mix your dry ingredients (easier clean-up!)
2 cups of flour ! (I did a little more of everything because my baking dish was larger than it should have been)
1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda
Mix it all together with a fork !
You'll want to make sure there are no clumps of flour
This is where the wax paper comes in handy - pick up all four corners gathered together so that nothing spills as you transfer to your mix
And pour !
You'll see as you start mixing that it's a little dry...
So this is where I add in a bit of milk to moisten up the batter !
See, that wasn't so hard, was it?!
About a half cup of yogurt !
Tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
Mix her all up !
Add in your lemon juice! I'm not really sure of the measurement as I kind of eyeball it...
...but it would really be better to do lemon juice straight from 2-3 lemons and shave some of the peel directly in !
Use about a tablespoon of butter to grease your dish
I should have warmed it up a bit first...!
Pour in your batter ! It doesn't matter if the top is completely flat, just make sure no side is deeper than the other
Now for the topping! About a half stick butter (you want it to be a little hard this time!)
And equal parts brown sugar and flour
This gets a little messy...pinch it up between your fingers until you have little brown sugar crumbles - add more of any ingredient you need
Crumble over batter !
Pray that your cake comes out well so your husband doesn't regret marrying you as he's doing these dishes... ;-*
Bake in oven at 350*F for about a half hour (when it smells like a cake, hurry up and get it out of there !)
Stick a knife into the middle of the cake... When you draw it out it should be clean !
That means your delicious brown-sugar lemonade crumble cake is ready to be enjoyed with a cool glass of sweet tea on a summer afternoon ! Like, comment or follow for more inspired recipes !
