New York Style Coffee Cake with LOTS of Crumb Topping


My daughter had her annual back-to-school sleepover the other night. This will most likely be the last one as they are all going into their senior year. I am holding out hope for one last one next year before they all go away to college but they just don’t know.

The nice thing is that as they have gotten older I have less and less responsibility in preparing the sleepover and what they eat. This year the girls made homemade pizza, which was lots of fun watching them figure out how to stretch out the dough, and then for breakfast they made this New York Style Coffee Cake with LOTS of Crumb Topping. They were all giggling about how much they love brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. They were snacking on the topping as they were making the cake at 2 am.

Verdict:

This is a delicious buttery cake with plenty of crumb topping (which is our favorite part). The crumb topping was about an inch thick over most of the cake which is hard to see in the picture.  The girls loved that they made it and had it for breakfast the next morning.

      Thank you! I am not much of a baker. I far prefer the imprecise method of cooking versus the exactness of baking.

        Haha… you need to get things done, right… lol! I would never call myself a fantastic cook – average I’d say – but for some reasons, baking has never been a challenge 😁

  5. Sounds great! As a rule I almost always double the crumb topping when I make a new recipe, but I think this one may have enough 🙂
