Coffee Crumble Cake

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

If food is the language of love, there is nothing much better than an oven warm, melt in your mouth cake to share the good vibes.

I used to love apple tea cake growing up, but now with the Holy Joe boys in the family, our new favourite is this delicious coffee crumble cake.  Delicious on its own or topped with a coffee cream it is of course best served with a shot of Holy Joe Cold Drip coffee on the side.
