I am very excited about this recipe for a couple of reasons –

  1. This is my first time baking a cake with crumbled topping. We all know crumbled cakes are the best!!
  2. It turned out to be delicious – perfectly moist and crumbly. My husband who does not have much of a sweet tooth loved it!
  3. It is also my official entry for the Sweet Southern Desserts Recipe contest.  This contest is sponsored by Dixie Crystals and Blog Life University Conference.

Why should you be excited about this cake?

  1. It is DELICIOUS!
  2. This recipe is straightforward and easy to make. Takes only 40 minutes or less!.
  3. It is a perfect excuse to eat cake for breakfast.

Of all the reasons, the last one is my favorite. I would love to know what’s your reason to make this cake and also, how it turned out when you made it.  Can’t wait to hear about it in the comments.

One last thing, you can skip the glaze if you are trying to cut calories but every now and then, we all deserve a delicious treat. Don’t we?

  1. Hi….. the recipe sounds amazing
    But u mentioned coffee and I don’t think it’s mentioned in the recipe!

    1. Coffee cakes are meant to be served with coffee. They don’t necessarily have coffee in them 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    Seriously…this looks incredible! One of these days I’m making it over near you and coming over for dinner! 🙂 Beautiful photo too!
