How do you keep crumb cake fresh?
Cinnamon crumb coffee cake stays fresh kept covered at all times. Keep any leftover cake covered in aluminum foil/plastic wraps. This will prevent the cake from drying out.
How do you store crumb cake?
Crumb topped cake can be stored at room temp covered for 1-2 days. For longer storage, keep the cake in fridge, up to 5 days. This cake also freezes well. Thaw in the fridge/counter top for a few hours before enjoying.
Why did my crumb topping melt?
The most common reason for melted crumb is you added way too much butter. Follow the crumb topping recipe closely and you will be fine.
