We have made the Favorite Coffee Cake many times. Yet, the topping sometimes would not cover the cake fully and was not as good as a topping I found for a New York Crumb Cake. Here I have combined the best of both recipes to come up with a great Crumble Cake. This cake part is from the recipe for Favorite Coffee Cake. (http://www.justapinch.com/recipes/dessert/cake/favorite-coffee-cake.html?p=3). The Topping Part is from a recipe for Crumb Cake by David Lebovitz. (http://www.davidlebovitz.com/coffee-crumb-cake-recipe/). Do try this recipe for Brooklyn/New York Crumble Cake. Enjoy!
