Happy first day of Spring! If you see it anywhere, send it my way. We had a hefty dose of snow in the last two days, snowflakes so big you could almost see their shapes through the window. Because that’s as close to the snow as I get. Or want to get. Don’t like winter. Miss summer. That’s me.
But hey! First day of spring calls for celebration. So… let’s eat cake!
New York Style Crumb Cake to be exact. It’s my favorite coffee crumb cake. All because of the topping. I tried many and this one is hands down the best. It won’t sink into the cake, which I don’t like. I added a tablespoon of molasses to it simply because I ran out of brown sugar. I have to say, I love the flavor it added to it.
I opted for a small pan with this cake (square 8″x8″ pan) so you won’t feel overwhelmed. 🙂 See what I did there? 🙂 I made you a favor by cutting the original recipe in half! Because I know you will love this cake and it would be really dangerous to have a whole big pan of it. Unless of course you want to share it with family and friends. Then go ahead and double it. But like I said, I am not sticking my nose out the door until the Spring arrives. 🙂
