    Over past 2 days, have tried twice to make crumb cake from googled recipes.  First was a TOTAL FAIL... my fault... completely forgot leavening and ended up with a square "boat anchor".  Second, only a semi success??  Recipe made 24 cupcakes, but I cut it in half to put in 8X8 (or maybe 9X9) pan.  After 25 minute bake time, it was FAR from being done, so gave it 5-6 more minutes.  After extra time, it was done (tooth pick test) but all the crumbs sank into the cake and bottom is very dense and gooey... though really tasty.

    Looking for something as a grab-and-go item for "breakfast".  Anyone have a recipe to share?

    Our house loves New York style Crumb Cake (anything Entenmann's)

    Many years ago I was watching Martha Stewart (pre-jail time) shows

    She made this fabulous looking cake, which I couldn’t find in Hawaii,

    And started making this recipe
