Good Morning Crumb Cake – This yummy crumb cake is perfect for a breakfast crowd or holiday brunch! It’ll be a hit at your next get together!
I think I would eat cake for breakfast every day if I could. And lunch. And dinner.
I love cake.
I made this crumb cake last week for a family brunch. I thought there would be plenty left over to take home and devour throughout the week. Somehow all of it disappeared.
Good thing I took these pictures beforehand and didn’t rely on a leftover piece to photograph when I got home. This recipe would be picture-less.
This recipe must have pictures. Do you see all that crumbly delicious topping? That tight-crumb cake? Helloooooooo delicious.
I’m calling this Good Morning Cake. Because you can’t eat this for breakfast and have a bad morning. It just doesn’t work like that.
This cake will make your morning good. Promise.
