I love raising my family in the great state of Texas but occasionally I do miss some of the food that I loved as a child growing up in NY. A good crumb bun from the local bakery had been on the top of that list for years until I found this recipe. It is DELICIOUS and almost an exact replica of the melt in your mouth sweet cinnamon treat that used to be a huge part of our Saturday mornings. You'll love this easy and yummy recipe. Great for taking to parties, but be careful....once people try it, they'll constantly ask for it!

yellow cake mix
4 1/2 c
all purpose flour
4 1/2 stick
1 1/2 c
4 1/2 tsp
powdered sugar


1Prepare cake according to package directions. Spray a 10 x 13 jelly roll pan with cooking spray. Distribute cake batter evenly in jelly roll pan. Place in a cool oven. Turn oven to 350 degrees and allow cake to begin to cook.
2In the meantime, combine flour, sugar and cinnamon. Cut in sticks of margarine with a pastry blender until it begins to form large crumbs. This may take some time and muscle, but it is worth it.
3Once the cake has baked for 20 minutes, sprinkle the entire crumb mixture, evenly, over the top. Continue to bake for an additional 20-30 minutes or until the crumbs begin to become a golden brown.
4Allow the cake to cool, completely and then dust with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
