Taste the crumble
This is the BEST crumb cake recipe in the whole entire world! The first time I made this cake it exceeded my wildest expectations and I’m certain it will exceed yours too. It not only tastes delicious, but the smell while it bakes is absolutely fabulous!
This is yet another outstanding Ina Garten recipe. The only thing that I changed from the original recipe is that I use a 9” springform pan rather than the cake pan that the original recipe calls for, and it worked out brilliantly. I highly, highly recommend you do the same if you have one. The springform pan guarantees an easy exit from your pan to your serving dish ensuring your cake doesn’t crumble before you are ready to serve it.
This cake is perfect for so many occasions, but I think serving it for brunch or with afternoon tea is about as perfect as it gets. I also can’t imagine a better house warming gift for a new neighbor or friend.
For storage, cover the cake loosely and leave it out at room temperature. It will stay for up to 3 days, if you can keep away from it for that long.
