Grandma's Crumb Cake (or Cupcakes)

This is a recipe my grandmother made all the time. Like many of her old recipes that I have found, she didn't have instructions, just ingredients. See NOTE for making this as a cupcakes. I was the first grandchild and freely admit to being spoiled rotten. I hated raisins (still do) so she always made some of the cupcakes, or a smaller cake for me without raisins. I do like dried cranberries, so add those now when I make this recipe.
