~Throwback Thursday ~Banana Crumb Cake and WIN a Slow
Cooker/Sous Vide and GF 4 Ingredients!
There are just some foods that I associate with geographical locations. ……
Tulsa = Sonic and El Rancho Grande
Melbourne = Coffee!!!
Chicago = Pizza
Sydney = Chicken ‘n Waffles at Jazz City
Port Douglas = Seafood
New Orleans = Spumoni
Aspen = Crepe Cart butter & cinnamon crepes after skiing all day as a kid
San Francisco = Pasta (Basta Pasta is the catalyst from a childhood visit)
Vail = Fondue
Texas = Mexican
New York = Pretzels……..and Crumb Cake.
Chelsea and I had the extreme pleasure of doing a trip to NY and Chicago a few years ago and we had the-best-time-ever. We ran from 7 in the morning until at least 11 ever night. We ate, we shopped, we saw a Broadway show, we shopped, we ate, we went sightseeing, we shopped, we did a Hop on / Hop off bus tour, we ate, we ate with a long time internet “pen pal” and her daughter that I had never met in person. And then the 4 of us shopped! It was an amazing experience but I don’t know I don’t know why I think of Crumb Cake with New York. I didn’t even HAVE a piece of Crumb Cake in New York. I think I may associate it with NY because of Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro, who doesn’t even operate Carlo’s Bakery in NY but in New Jersey. Who can understand how the mind associates things?
But Crumb Cake is a quintessentially 1970’s cake that has had a revival in recent years and thank goodness it has. Moist cake topped with buttery, sugary crumbs along with a cup of coffee for morning or afternoon tea or gently warmed and topped with ice cream and caramel sauce as a dessert. You cannot go wrong with a crumb cake. My personal favourite would have to be Cinnamon Swirl Crumb Cake but, since cinnamon is excluded on Failsafe, I decided to use the over ripe bananas on my kitchen bench and bake a couple o cakes for my esteemed colleagues.
Between my beautiful family and my colleagues, there’s not a crumb left
