I am quickly dashing off this post as Passover is quickly approaching. By the time you read this, it will be Passover and that means no bread, pizza, cake, cookies, etc for 8 days. As a matter of fact, you are not supposed to own these things or even really look at them/interact with them for the entire holiday. As you can imagine, I could not make this cake on Passover.
However, I made this a few weeks ago and it was a huge hit at the two meetings I brought it to. Everyone loved the large crumbs and the great ratio of crumbs to cake (it is about one to one). Apparently this is what makes it a New York-Style crumb cake -- that and the lack of swirl.
I wish I had more time to tell you all the delicious features of this cake, but you should just make it and see for yourself. When I was making the crumb, I was really unsure about what it would look and taste like, but everything turned out great. Another hit from the guys at Baked!
