Who's Mrs. McCabe?

Another recipe from my mother's box, here is a picture of the crumb cake I made this morning. What a great way to start off the day! I love baking because, although often times the dessert is not low fat, it's preservative, dye, and high fructose free. Anyway, the toppping, which is a mixture of cinnamon, sugar, flour, and butter, definately "makes" the dessert. It complements the simple bread and accentuates the tasty, hard outer crust. A delicious dessert or breakfast item, great to bring to work or savor at home with a steaming cup of joe.

For next time, I will add bits of apples, a suggestion of my Mom.
