If you’re a fan of New York-style crumb cake, you’re going to love this version, which is more streusel (shown here with Cocoa Cardamom Streusel) than cake. Too much of a good thing? Nah. It’s just right.

Just made today. See comments at end... I cut down the streusel to 3 cups. Seriously, when it says 6 cups, did they mean like 6 tablespoons? 6 ounces. Even three cups was way too much. Also, I thought streasual was too bitter ...even with added sugar...and not sweet enough and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t like things too sweet.
That said, the cake part was amazing and easy. I will be making that again as a go to. I used orange extract. Next time for streusel I will sweeten it up a bit and cut back amount used to maybe one cup... Does look beautiful.
I forgot to mention in my earlier review that I made the Marcona almond-streusel for the cake.
