Crumb cake recipes, aka Streuselkuchen, are quick and delicious treats to make for your family and friends. These traditional cakes, which are so easy to make, look so pretty, too. The fruit and flavorings can be changed to provide variation The method of making these crumb cakes, though, is a basic recipe to learn. Do check out the warning below!
Usually I put apple slices under the streusel. However, peach slices, pear slices, halved plums, even pitted cherries would be delicious. Don't forget to add a dollop of whipped cream!
A warning though - the crumb topping is so delicious, if you have kids (or a husband) around, they may try to sneak some topping off the cake while it is cooling (and even before it is baked)!
I admit that I always sneak some!
