Cardamom Crumb Cake

This crumb cake was so easy to whip up.  I made a few minor changes to the recipe.  At my daughter's request I omitted the nuts.  She was very happy!  I didn't have any oranges so I substituted lemon zest, and instead of butter I used olive oil.  You couldn't even taste it!    The lemon was very fresh and the cake was a hit with all my family!

If you want to try this recipe look in Dorrie Greenspan's book Baking From My Home To Yours on pages 38-39.  Or you can look on Jill's website (she picked this week!):  http://jillbert.wordpress.com/2010/12/21/tuesdays-with-dorie-cardamom-crumb-cake-my-pick/
