quick and easy, Member peasshell8

I reduced the sugar and brown sugar by adding 1/2 sugar 1/2 splenda and used half and half. I also used 1 tbsp of baking power instead of 2tsps. By using soybean oil instead of the shortening, the cake was more moistand even though the cake itself was less sweet, the crumb topping balanced out the sweetness with half brown sugar and half splenda. You omit the flour and YUM! This is a wonderful moist crumb cake and now my favorite recipe: definitely 2 thumbs up with half the sugar, fat. And calories!
