"This cake is also great for the cake part of Pineapple Upside Down Cake; just don't take the 1/2 cup of crumbs out when making Pineapple Upside Down Cake."

This cake is delicious. After reading the one review about not enough crumbs, I kept out an extra 1/4 cup for crumbs. It is moist and am proud to say after 40+ years I finally have a perfect Crumb Cake Recipe!! Thank you!!
The "cake" part was good, however, the crumb topping needs much improvement. More butter is needed (which I melted instead of crumbled) and I used light brown sugar instead of the white. Be sure to add the cinnamon to taste. (we enjoy a lot more) Also a nice sprinkling of confectioners sugar over the top once it's cooled adds a nice touch.
The cake part was too much with not enough crumbs. However slight adjustments would produce a great crumb cake. The cake portion was moist and flavorful. My husband loved it with the adjustments!
I was not impressed with this crumb cake at all. This is not your typical idea of a crumb cake. It was more like a Shortbread, cake. Although it was tasty, I couldn't bring myself to not add cinnamon - which was how this recipe was written. I would also take up the advice of other reviewers and double the amount of crumb mixture, as 1/2 cup was not nearly enough. Overall, I would say this cake could be used as a good base, with different toppings and the like, but not an excellent crumb case in iteself.
Other reviewers are correct when they say this cake does not taste or have the texture of a crumb cake. Crumb cakes are nearly always made with buttermilk and baking soda. If you can find a similar recipe and make the adjustments I think you will find a huge difference
pretty good, but it didn't taste much like the crumb cakes i'd had before. i made this for a party in my 12th grade english class once we finished our huge research paper. definately no complaints from that crowd (or the teacher).
Moist and delicious, we think that it would be a great cake recipe for any ocasion, topping it with your favorite frosting or topping
Thia crumb cake is very moist and most of all if you would add a cup of choclate chips mmmmmmmmm very good
