A Recipe And A Luncheon

I had several requests for the recipe for the crumb cake I talked about in my last post, so I decided to just post it here on the blog. I'm not a foodie nor a cook so recipes posted here are few and far between; enjoy!

Cherry Crumb Cake

1 Cup sugar
2 Cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 Cup softened butter
1 egg
1 Can cherry pie filling (or filling of your choice)

Mix sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.

Cut in butter

Add egg and mix to crumbs

Place half of crumb mixture in a greased 9x9 pan (I always use this small rectangular pan because it has a lid)

Spread filling over crumbs

Place remaining crumbs over top.

Bake at 350 for 30 min or until lightly browned.

Best eaten warm and yummy served with ice cream!


A lunch invitation today gave me the perfect opportunity to make this dessert again and take the pictures. A sweet lady from church invited all of us ladies who have bid our mothers farewell here on earth to gather at her house.

Our hostess provided a main dish salad and the rest of us brought a side in memory of our mom. Her beautiful backyard was the perfect setting for the lovely little oasis she prepared for us.

I didn't take pictures of the food nor record the conversations but both were equally delightful! There is nothing like shared food and laughter mixed with sentimental memories to brighten the day and make one's heart lighter.

I love this idea. There is bonding in the shared pain.

It was such a sweet idea! Honestly, I wasn't sure about it at first and was afraid I'd need to carry a whole box of tissues. But it turned out to be really fun and so good for my soul!

Well the thing is, I'm sure you don't know me. (And I kinda like being anonymous;) I don't know you...but I like reading your blog. I like to write too and every once in awhile i consider having a blog...but I'm rather too busy right now with 5 sweet kiddos under age 8 and the 6th is on the way! Anyway my name's Marjorie Groff. Do you know me? :) PA. Mennonite. Oh by the way I used to go to Gina Martins church before I married my dear man. That's the only connection I think we might have.

Ahh! No, I don't believe I know you but it's so much more friendly to picture a "Marjorie Groff" than a "MAG" 😉 Actually, one of my brother's initials are MAG and the first time you commented I thought maybe it was him, then a later comment didn't quite match up ☺ Thanks for the introduction! You can go back to being anonymous now if you like.
