This New York Crumb Cake is a classic favorite that goes well with your morning coffee! The crumb topping is to die for!
New York Crumb Cake
The best part of a New York Crumb Cake is obviously the crumbs! There’s just something about those buttery and cinnamony specks of deliciousness on top of a simple cake. Amiright?!
Many of you know I am not a breakfast fan. Normally, I’m good with a piece of toast, a piece of fruit and some coffee. Sometimes, it’s yogurt, fruit, and coffee. I’m kinda boring lie that. However, we like to have a special breakfast on Sunday mornings – sometimes it’s a sweet meal like coffee cakes or cinnamon rolls … and other times it’s savory like quiches, omelets, breakfast sandwiches. Occasionally, I can’t decide and we have both! Sunday is the one day where I feel like I actually eat “breakfast.”
This New York Crumb Cake is a favorite in the Love Bakes Good Cakes house, but it’s not something we enjoy very often ….
My kiddos like to make me breakfast on Mother’s Day and, to be honest, I have this huge fear of them burning down the house. Over the years, I have figured out that I feel safer to let them “help” me make something on Saturday … that way on Sunday all they have to do is serve it. Sneaky, huh?!
With Mother’s Day just a few days away, this would make a great addition to a special brunch menu for mom! There’s no doubt she’ll love it! 😉 Enjoy!
