Good Morning Crumb Cake

I think I would eat cake for breakfast every day if I could. And lunch. And dinner.

I love cake.

Good Morning Crumb 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.

Delicious cake. Confused on cooking time though–after 40 minutes, cake was still shaking, so cooked another 15 minutes, not done, another 15 minutes, still not done, another 15 minutes. The cake itself was done, but the bottom was burned. I used 9 x 13″ Pyrex pan. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Does the 2 cups flour come out of the 4 and 1/2 cups of flour you start with the butter and sugar say use rest of but not the flour so I take it not need 4 and 1/2 cups flour for cake please clarify for me thank you

Can’t make it because the recipe doesn’t show all the topping ingredients
You have so many advertisements it is hard to find the recipes

    INSTRUCTIONS #2 tells you everything you need for topping.

Hello there! Found this recipe from your site just now and I am really craving good old fashioned crumb cake. Easy enough to make but my one question is .. can you bake in two round cake pans.. like an 8 or 9 inch pan? I read that someone had an issue with the long cooking time . Personally, making two smaller cakes would be simpler and one all for me and one for another day! Thanks so much!

    I’m sure that’s possible!!
