Orange Date Crumble Cake

Put the coffee pot on!  This cake is just perfect to serve for breakfast or brunch.  The brown sugar crumble tops a moist orange cake studded with dates.  Just too good to pass up.  Time to sit, relax and enjoy this wonderful cake with friends and family.

As a side note – I sent this crumble cake to my husband’s office – First comments on the coffee cake, “These are ridiculous!” and “Best coffee cake – ever!”
