They also make a great hostess gift during the holidays.tags: breakfast snacks lunch box brunch fruit rice, grains and breads bake more
My mother-in-law's friend Margaret is famous for this homemade oatmeal bread and she makes it every time she visits, leaving a sliced loaf in the freezer as a parting gift. It's great toasted with butter, jam, peanut butter – or on its own fresh from the oven.tags: breakfast snacks lunch box brunch lunch rice, grains and breads bake more

I have memories of eating mini crumb coffee cakes wrapped in plastic – two to a pack – in my elementary school cafeteria. The topping was basically cinnamon and brown sugar crumbs with one or two nut bits thrown in for good measure. I imagine they had a shelf life of about 10 years, right up there with Twinkies.
This crumb cake recipe is about as far you can get from the crumb coffee cake of my youth. It's a "New York-style" crumb cake, whatever that means. But it's more of a dessert or snack than breakfast (although delish then as well). The cake is moist and not too sweet – the star is the crumb topping – huge chunks of brown sugar, cinnamon and buttery goodness.tags: breakfast desserts snacks lunch box rice, grains and breads bake more
