Sorry it took me a full 6 hours to share this cake with you, but I’ve spent all that time trying to come up with a name for this cake.
Is it a NY Crumb cake? A coffee cake, maybe? It kind of tastes like a big fluffy cinnamon roll in cake form, so I had no idea on what to write on the tittle bar ahh.
I decided to go with NY Crumb cake because, oh well, it looks like that *I think*. Maybe you’re from New York and are now sitting in front of the screen wishing you could punch me in the face because this doesn’t look like a proper NY cake to you. Maybe. I’ll take the risk anyway since I live far away from you New Yorkers and plane tickets are expensive. Therefore I assume you’re not going to hop on a plane and punch me – see? I’m all safe here.
Don’t mind the name, it is awesome anyway.
Let’s talk cake (aka my favorite topic ever, can you tell?). This one is on the denser side, but that doesn’t mean it’s like a brick or wet at all. I don’t think I would like the texture, as I’m all in for fluffy, tender baked goods, but oh boy, did I adore this!
Then, there was supposed to be a cinnamon swirl, but I don’t think you can see it from my pictures. At first, I thought that the batter had eaten the swirl *gasp*, but then I cut into the remaining cake and saw that the swirl was in part of the pieces, but not in all of them. Sadly, it is not pictured, so you guys will have to use your imagination. It is a very pretty swirl – the princess of all cinnamon swirls. Can you picture it now?
The streusel is out of this world delicious oh boy. Crunchy, sugary and cinnamony – just the way I like it! I could eat it on its own, but I supposed it makes a killer topping too.
And as if the cake wasn’t already delicious enough, I decided to drizzle a bit of cream cheese icing on top. I was going to say it is up to you to add it or not, but when is cream cheese icing optional??
c) Both a) and b) are correct
So cream cheese icing it was – what a brilliant decision, if I may say so myself.
Do you know which one is a brilliant decision as well? Making this cake.
You go guys. And don’t forget to call me when it’s out of the oven – I’d love to come round!
