This past weekend my husband and I were invited to go up to our friend's house in Shinhopple, NY. Since there was a number of people going I decide to try the Crumb Cake recipe someone gave me at my bridal shower. I figure it was something that people could eat for breakfast or to take a little here, a little there when they wanted it. I think it was a big hit. I saw people munching on it all weekend.
1 box of yellow cake mix, prepared as directed
3 sticks of butter or margarine
3 1/4 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
Prepare the yellow cake mix as direct. Bake in a 13 x 9 greased pan for 22 minutes at 350 . Mean while prepare crumbs.
Melt the 3 sticks of butter. Sift together the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Blend into melted butter. After cake has baked for 22 minutes (make sure the top of the cake is firm) sprinkle the crumbs on top and bake another 15 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool completely and sift confectionery sugar on top.
My review of this recipe: It was super easy to make took and took no time at all. It's also great for any occasion. Next time I might try making it as cupcakes.
