I love crumb cakes because they are like muffins but quicker and easier to make!  Plus, you can eat them anytime.  They go perfectly with a hot drink for breakfast, have a piece of crumb cake with fruit or soup for lunch, eat it for dessert, a snack, or as a side dish at dinner the options are endless!

Like a muffin recipe, you want to be careful not to mix the batter too much or the cake will be dry and kind of fall apart.  Mix it well until all the ingredients are combined but not any longer!
