Granny's Crumb Coffeecake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by SweetSabrina

This melt-in-your-mouth coffeecake is the perfect treat. I've been eating this cake for as long as I can remember. It's a favorite at family get-togethers. It's been passed down from my great-granny who thought it up in her kitchen years ago. Perfect with a cup of coffee or glass of milk. To make sour milk use 1 TBSP vinegar with 1 cup of milk and let stand for 10-15 minutes, or use buttermilk instead.

I added chopped pecans with the topping and it was a great delicious treat for breakfast!
