This was yet another cake that I brought to a meeting, and it was yet another cake that proved to be very popular. (People always seem very happy to see me. I think all the cake might be the reason for that.)
This was a very straightforward cake. It was another one that I baked in the morning and brought to the meeting a few hours later.
My only complaint, and Tim agreed, was that there wasn’t enough crumble on the top. This might have more to do with the fact that we both grew up on the East Coast, where crumble cake is taken very, very seriously, and East Coast crumble is at least 2 centimetres deep on top of a cake. This crumble didn’t really cover the top of all the cake. So while it was adequate, it wasn’t exactly generous. So when I make this again– and there will be a next time– I’ll probably double the crumble to put on the top.
Other than that, another winning cake to make the most popular person at our meeting.
