Growing up in Brooklyn during the 1950's it was a much simpler time, not carefree, just simpler.
As kids, we found pleasure in the small things, a "Spaldeen" with a good bounce, a sack of marbles and bottle caps to play "skully". It was a time when baseball players were guys that lived in your neighborhood and played ball for a job. When sitting on your stoop with friends and family watching the cars go by instead of T.V. was the norm. A time when your telephone number began with a word rather than numbers- "Dickens 5!" Enjoying all the treats your neighborhood had to offer. A good dill pickle, a great knish, Brooklyn pizza... and, oh yes, Crumb Cake.
The "gang" on Clarkson Avenue loved this stuff. It was a special, pure pleasure that the family enjoyed together... especially picking the crumbs off the cake. Over the years, it just seemed like we couldn't get the same kind of crumb cake we had as kids. So at the Clarkson Avenue Crumb Cake Company, we set out to fix that. And we did. Our cakes are moist, our crumbs are plump- the combination is perfection.
We invite you and your family to sit on our "stoop", grab some crumb cake, relax, enjoy the moment and create your own memories. Connect to a simpler time. A time not without its own issues but a time that a simple bite could make life seem like a piece of cake...
