{gg’s crumb coffee cake}


Life is short….eat cake for breakfast!  And I’ve got the quintessential breakfast cake for you…..

This is a classic!  Mainly, since it’s one of GG’s recipes.  Which I treasure ♥

It’s also a recipe I almost forgot about.  Until we planned the menu for our family Memorial Day Casini Ranch camping trip.  I’m working on a big ol post all about Casini Ranch…coming soon!

The reason I remembered this recipe….it’s something my Mom makes every camping trip.  Clearly someone had to step up to the plate and bring the tradition along.

Guess who volunteered?  Bay 🙂

Any reason she can find to pull out her kitchen aid and bake!!


Trust me, this is not just a camping recipe.  Since Bay made it Memorial Day weekend….we’ve made 2 more batches since.  A slice of GG’s Crumb Coffee Cake with a warm cup of coffee in the morning…..pure heaven!  Bay swears it goes great with her chocolate milk too 🙂

Make it for a weekend breakfast and let me know what you’re peeps think!!!


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped


Here what you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour + salt + 1 teaspoon cinnamon + brown sugar + sugar + oil on medium until mixed well.

Remove 3/4 cup of the mixture and set aside for the topping.

To the mixer, add baking soda + baking powder + buttermilk + egg.  Mix until combined.

Pour batter into a prepared 9×13 baking dish.


Using the 3/4 cup of mixture you set aside, add walnuts + additional 1 teaspoon cinnamon.  Mix well and sprinkle over the batter.

Bake 25-30 minutes.




Would you look at that.  It’s a complete miracle in a 9×13.

Mountains of carbs!



This is like potato chips….you can’t just have one piece!  Ha!!  Maybe I’ll blame this on my post BRIK measurments?
