Sit For a While and Talk

Tarry a while. There is crumb cake and all the coffee or tea you would like. Tell me what is on your heart today. I’m listening, friend. (That’s what this room says to me.) Here is my mother’s old crumb cake recipe. Just in case you’d like to try it.

2 cups flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp. of ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter or margerine
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup sour milk (add two tablespoons of vinegar to make it clabber)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup of raisins (can use chocolate chips or nuts also)

Sift together sugar, spices and flour. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Set aside one cup of the mix. Mix sour milk, baking soda and baking powder in small bowl. (It will foam up so make sure you do this in a bowl.) Add in the beaten egg. Then stir in dry ingredients just until moistened. Add raisins, nuts or chocolate chips. Batter will be thick. Take half of the crumbly mix set aside earlier and put in the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 pan. Spoon in batter gently on top of crumbly mix. Top the batter with the 1/2 cup of mix left over. Bake in oven at 350 for 40 minutes or until toothpick/knife comes out clean.
