Crumble cake – the classic

Crumble cake is simple and always good.


I wondered if a recipe for crumble cake makes any sense. Somehow it is a very simple cake, popular and very delicious. We make this crumble cake more often, because it is so simple and delicious. Simply the smell when it comes out of the oven is heavenly. Then try a still warm piece of the cake, mmmhhhh!

Many have problems with yeast dough and therefore this is the biggest difficulty for such a crumble cake. But don’t care, just try it and learn. The more often you do it the better it works
