    Yummy

    Ginger Grospitch from VERNON, CT

    This is a very nice, moist crumbcake. It got rave reviews from my husband's co-workers. I think that there was too much topping on the cake, taking away from the cake itself. Next time I wil probably cut back on the topping. Overall, very good and worth the effort.

    Took this to work......eleven people wanted the recipe. I doubled the streusel topping and next time will double the amount of dried cherries in the batter. Definately worth the time and expense to make!!!!!
