Do you have that one recipe from your childhood that you remember being “the best thing ever.”
And this is the recipe you would have done anything to get it so that you could enjoy your favorite thing over and over and over again.
This crumb cake is that recipe for me.
At one time in my life I was a competitive swimmer. I swam for the local swim club and my high school.
My high school had required morning practices multiple times a week…it was brutal. But on every morning practice before a meet & every friday we had swim breakfasts.
The parents brought in the typical fare; biscuits and gravy, fruit, bagels, smoothies, casseroles…
But my friend’s mom made this crumb cake (we referred to it as crack cake) that was out of this world. She swore she would never give up the recipe but she finally decided to add it to her blog, making me one happy baker.
This is a basic coffee cake but it’s the perfect base to fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips.
I hope you have the chance to make this coffee cake and that you find it as addictive as I do.
