Crumb coffee cake

File this under naughty things to make once in a great while. I was craving coffee cake — you know, the kind that has as much crumbly topping as actual cake?

Well, it took me a while to figure out that most recipes for such a cake are called ‘crumb cake.’ But I finally found a recipe for exactly what I wanted.

It called for rhubarb, which would be delicious. But I didn’t have any, and I wanted it plain anyway. So I made it plain, and it was incredibly good. Like, I-need-to-be-alone-with-my-fork good.

It’s nice warm out of the oven or cold out of the fridge. Make it next time you’re hosting a brunch. Or maybe just for yourself. Just because.
