I have been trying to locate two recipes for many years. Both were available in
the Trenton, NJ area. The first came from Friehofferís Bakery and it was the most 
delicious crumb cake I have ever had. I hadnít had it in 40 years when, for my 
birthday, a co-worker brought me a crumb cake. One bite and I was transferred back 
to my childhood. When I said it, with obvious elation, she said that the woman who 
made it was a baker for Friehoeffers for over 50 years. Unfortunately, the woman I 
worked for became ill the next week and passed away and I never got the recipe.

Hi Alyce,

Taking these one at a time.

I could only find a couple of mentions of Freihofer's Bakery Crumb Cake. I could not find a recipe for it with any connection to the bakery.

However, there is a recipe on this newspaper site that says "breakfast bun recipe inspired by Freihoferís crumb cake." You might want to give it a try: Grocery Aisle Memories
