Crumb Cake with a side of ‘Go to Mehico’

 

Your royal Princess has arrived. With crumb cake.Goooood crumb cake. t’s quick fast and it’s soooooooooo buttery and delish. And you know Princess loves her butter. Oil stains on a dress? No problem.

 

So, this week and a half has been hectic. We were stuck in a hotel with NO internet. In this day and age, seriously?!!! I called the reception to see if they could try and fix it and the man on the line just screamed ‘ No interenty,No internety.’ I,being an adventurous princess decided to go downstairs and ask again.

 

  The man at the reception had not shaved in days and reeked of tequila. Naturally, he was holding a bottle of it in his hands. As I walked by he chanted ‘Go to Mehico!’ ‘Internet is in Mehico! Go to Mehico,Go!’ and I just shallowed my Princess Pride and took my elevator ride back upstairs to go and write an angry  review on TripAdvisor.

 

Crumb Cake……. the hotel at least did one thing right. Crumb Cake.So, I tried to recreate it. And it’s 30 times better.

 

  This is a really moist,buttery cake. With a texture kick. The crunch on top and with all my recipes it is uber uber easy to make! Enjoy folks!

Now, let’s  talk about something serious. Africa needs help. And a lot of it. Each of us has a moral duty to help those less fortunate. When I saw this petition on Change.Org I was shocked. Babies riding on Motorcycles? That’s horrifying. And the Government doesn’t want to stop it. They will only stop it if outside forces (media) are brought in. Millions of children die from either falling off the high speed machines or from the diseases riding with out an helmet can cause. Please visit this site and sign this petition, this girl needs our help, Africa needs our help.If you truly care about children’s safety sign this petition : http://www.change.org/petitions/road-safety-commision-of-oyo-state-babies-and-small-children-riding-on-okadas-mopeds-vespas-motorcycles?share_id=YipEwMmWyF
