Yogurt Crumb Cake, gluten free

Hubby's birthday this week and this is his favorite cake. We serve it with sliced fresh organic fruit and my favorite homemade coconut ice cream.    It has a light crumb, beautiful flavor and he adores the crunchy crumb topping. It's pretty wonderful that I can make him happy with a gluten free cake! Happy Birthday sweetheart.  I love you!  xoxo
