How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my soul can reach…
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning-
Looking for the perfect dessert to top off that special Valentine dinner?
Look no further, for this is the best crumb cake recipe ever! Bake up a tray of this cake and that special someone just may fall even more madly in love with you…it’s that good!
The recipe below is for the crumb cake that my mother used to bake for us. Lately I have moved towards healthier ingredients and baking from scratch…but there are times when you just can’t substitute. My mother always insisted on making her cakes using Pillsbury Yellow Cake mix, and for this recipe I have to agree…use the box mix…nothing compares.
(Hey…it also makes it super simple to whip this up when you are short on time…)
