The other night I stopped at my parents for dinner, and I had the pleasure of eating the Jersey Shore's best crumb cake. This crumb cake is remarkable, it's so good that it doesn't even make sense how someone can make something this delicious...

First, is it crumb cake or coffee cake? Most people I know say "crumb cake", I think my grandpa calls it coffee cake, but for this article, I'll write crumb cake. Either way, we all can still celebrate one of the world's tastiest desserts..

So who has the Jersey Shore's Best crumb cake? This is my opinion and I know many of you will agree. However, Lou Russo from the Jersey Shore Morning Show does not agree. It wasn't long ago he highlighted Mueller's Bakery in Bay Head. Yes, Mueller's makes a tremendous crumb cake but is it the best? In my opinion, Dearborn Market in Holmdel makes the Jersey Shore's best crumb cake. The cake is moist and the crumbs stay on top without falling apart. Most importantly, the powdered sugar sprinkled on top HITS DIFFERENT! It's a must have crumb cake! If you haven't had a Dearborn Market crumb cake, are you actually living?!

They have great pies too...
