Easy Crumb Cake

Where has the summer gone? It was winter forever and then a crazy spring of rain, then a really hot summer, now August with the perfect Maine summer days that you don’t want to end. I just want those lazy summer days never to end.

 

My perfect morning is a cool breeze flowing through the kitchen, Pandora playing Etta James, and a Crumb Cake in the oven, like it’s no trouble at all, sit down and have a coffee and a piece of coffee cake perfect kind of morning.

Make all my mornings like this, life is perfect.
