Crumb Cake

"MY FAVORITE time to visit my grandmother was when she'd just taken her crumb cake out of the oven. A warm piece of that cake with a cold glass of milk was the best treat. I remember Grandma was able to simply look at the batter and know if it was right...and it was perfect every time. -Kathy Lucas, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania"

It was kind of plain. I don't consider this a crumb cake. The crumb cake I am used to has a flour, cinnamon, and sugar topping with a lot of flavor. Might try this as a base for making my own cr...

I used butter flavored crisco, I love this recipe!!

I used butter instead of shortening, added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and topped with cinnamon streusel. I poured the batter into jumbo muffin tins instead of a pan; made wonderful rich cake...
