Yellow Crumb Cake

Recipe by PaulaG

A pretty cake that is made from your homemade cake mix, Crumb Cake Mix #121352. Another adaption from Make a Mix Cookery. It is another great cake for a small family.

Well, this little cake used up the last of Paula's Crumb Cake Mix #1212352 that I had on hand - so I have to whip up another batch. It's a delightful cake with a tender crumb and not too sweet, and a perfect dessert today for the kids and myself. My daughter was thrilled with the pink icing (we've never had coloured icing before) and has demanded I make one for her kindergarten. Thanks Paula.
