Crumb Cake!

Crumb Cake, a nice piece of Crumb Cake with a hot cup of coffee in the morning is the perfect snack in my little world.  Well, only sometimes, that is!  I have this recipe for Crumb Cake, and it's so easy, and simply delicious!  This cake is an old stand by recipe for me, in a pinch when I have to bring something yummy to a friends house for coffee, or even for my kids school functions.  It has the perfect "crumb", nice big pieces, perfect to pick off the cake, when you just want to eat the "crumbs"....hey I'm not the only one who does that, now am I?

This cake starts off with a CAKE MIX........oh no!  Did she just say "CAKE MIX?".....YES I DID!!!!  That's why it's so EASY!  And the "Crumb Topping" is, of course, homemade, well something has to be homemade!  Here's the recipe.

1 Box Vanilla Cake Mix (follow the directions to the cake mix, add the eggs, water, and oil, mix it up and pour in a 9x13 BUTTERED baking dish. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or just until you see a "skin" forming on top of the cake.

Crumb Topping
4 cups flour
3 sticks (yes 3 sticks butter) Melted
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 1/2  cups Brown sugar

Melt the butter, in a large bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar, crumble with your finger, if too wet add a little more flour, depends on the humidity I think.  When the cake has that "skin" on top,  put the crumb topping on the cake evenly, making sure it all covered.  Bake another 10 - 15 minutes until done and the topping is golden in color.  Cool.......YUMMO!
