When I grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, those desserts were traditional Middle-Eastern desserts like baklava, halawet jiben, kahik, zalabya, etc. But have you ever tried baking Middle-Eastern sweets? I think it takes a special talent, patience and time and I just don’t have those things right now! So, I mostly bake Americanized sweets like muffins, banana breads and my recent favorite…Cinnamon Coffee Crumb Cake!!

  1. So delicious and the cake came out so light and fluffy (I used 5% greek yogurt instead of sour cream). I also doubled the topping for an extra decadent coffee cake. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Baked this cake for my birthday and it was an absolute hit! So moist and tasty. Thank you for doing what you do
