Gerhild Naggert's Easy Crumb Cake

This easy crumb cake has fruit tucked under the crumb topping. This einfacher Streuselkuchen was sent in by another Gerhild!

It's similar, but totally different than my Streuselkuchen, especially in the method. So wonderful having a variety of different German foods to present for your Kaffeeklatsch!
