Hi all!

I did a guest post on a friend’s blog this AM, on The Financial Diet – go check it out to read the full post! I make this stuff all the time and you should too. It’s that good.

This past Sunday I woke up – nay I felt compelled to get up earlier than I would have liked to because I had this crumb crake recipe on the brain and simply could not fall back asleep until I made it. You see I had stumbled upon this glorious coffee cake earlier in the week via Joy the Baker instagram. However, I was too lazy to go out and buy oranges wasn’t particularly in the mood for orange, I remained dead set on baking a nice little crumb topped cake to accompany some hot creamed coffee on my favorite morning of the week. I followed Martha Stewart’s recipe for Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake.

As with all things Martha, mine did not come out as perfect as her photograph showed. Mine didn’t turn out as volumous because after I poured the batter into my too-big spring form pan , I realized there was not going to be any “in between” layer but rather one layer with some struesel topping swirled throughout, while the majority sat packed atop the cake in all it’s buttery sugared nutty goodness. It was moist and delicious and the perfect way to start a new week and a beautiful, wintery Sunday.
