Last week, on someones (I can't for the life of me remember who) blog, I saw a link to a New York-Style Crumbcake recipe. New York Style means that the crumb layer is almost as thick as the cake layer. New York Style means that you don't even want to know the calorie count or fat grams in this just want to eat it. I have had similar crumbcake at Starbucks and have always wanted to make one. Because my sweet friends Mimi and Joni were coming for coffee on Tuesday and another dear friend, Nancy, was coming later that day for a sleepover, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try this recipe. I made it Monday night while watching Dancing With The Stars (of course I'm watching and voting for Hines Ward and Kym Johnson!!!)
I'm sorry that I don't remember the blog that the link came from but here is the link to the recipe.
Because David was still in Israel with my camera (he's home safe and sound now) I asked Mimi to take some pictures.

Truth be told....if given a choice between something chocolaty and something with crumbs and cinnamon...I'd go for the crumbs every time! Here is the link to the recipe.  It is taken from the book "Baked Explorations" by Matt Lewis & Renalto Poliafito. You will love this one!

I guess you'd have to serve me both for me to make a final decision as to which is my favorite.

That crumb cake looked delicious!! I am so with you on cinnamon and crumbs before chocolate....anything with cinnamon is a weakness of mine!! Thanks for the recipe link.

Hi Joyce! I found my way here from the Bloggerette Sorority website, and right away you had me with the wonderful looking coffee cake!!! I've already printed the recipe, and can't wait to try it! I'm pretty new (since only this past Christmas) to scrapbooking and paper crafting, but I love it. Having read back a little I love your work too! I got a kick out of the Lennon Sisters! I most definitely DO remember them! I used to watch them all the time when visiting my grandparents on the weekends! It's nice to meet you, and I'm now a follower! ~tina
