Recipe by rainlion

I do not claim this recipe as my own. It is the best molasses crumb cake though. I stalked a woman at church for the recipe. She insists it's the oil that makes it so moist.

Ive been making this recipe for years. It's truly simple and good. The only difference with my recipe is the addition of 1tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp cloves to the crumb mixture.
