we have an entemann's outlet not too far from us, prices are great for stocking up. naturally, i will buy their crumb cake. i grew up on it.
this time however, they left must to be desired. with crumb cake, you have to at least have 1/2 inch of crumb to satisfy my requirement. the two millimeters atop of my purchased crumb cake did not qualify.
(not gunna lie, i still ate the whole box).
my desire for crumb cake was not fulfilled. i turned to google to help fill my void.
as much as i don't want to admit going over to martha's dark side, i must say that her crumb cake was exactly what i was looking for.
first time i made it, the batter didn't seem to cover the bottom of the 9 x 13 pan, so i doubled it. and added fifty percent more crumb. it turned out fine, but took forever to bake.
just stick with the original recipe. new york crumb cake.
see what i mean about not covering the bottom. but it all will turn out alright, i promise! baking powder will make it all better.
while baking, i took a picture of myself less than 24 hours before having number three.
so much for having crumb cake for friday morning breakfast!
simple ingredients and ease of recipe have made this a go-to recipe for anytime i need to add another inch to my butt.
i mean, anytime guests are coming over:)
**you can use the crumb recipe for topping muffins and pies, too**
