Easy Crumb Cake Recipe

MY FAVORITE time to visit my grandmother was when she'd just taken her crumb cake out of the oven. A warm piece of that cake with a cold glass of milk was the best treat. I remember Grandma was able to simply look at the batter and know if it was right...and it was perfect every time. -Kathy Lucas, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania
