Sometimes, I feel that words don’t adequately describe the taste of food, because we need to utilize our senses to appreciate the deliciousness. Our eyes need to gaze on its beauty, and our sense of smell needs to breathe in the earthy aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, and baked apples. We use our ears to be attentive to the moaning and rumbling of our stomach, as it aches for the taste of a true bakery style coffee cake.
The kind of cake that you may have experienced from a local bakery in your town. My childhood memories revolve around Meuer’s Bakery, in Waukesha, Wisconsin. That is where my heart lived as a young child.
Trips there with my dad on Sunday mornings were as wonderful as daddy/daughter time can get for an 8-year old. Being the youngest girl in the family, and sharing a birthday with my dad, had definite advantages! I was always the first one in our family to bite into a warm doughnut. Riding in the front seat, with full control over the radio was a huge deal, you guys! 😉
Meuer’s had free, freshly baked samples on the counter, and my little fingers were the first to welcome them.
Back to the sensory overload of apple cinnamon crumb cake…
As your fingers delicately lift the buttery-moist cake to your lips, you’ll know in an instant that your mouth and tongue are in for some yummi love!
