Break the eggs into a measuring cup and add milk to make 1 cup. Add to the flour crumble mixture and beat on medium until smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pan. Spread the reserved 1/4 cup of crumb batter over top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes. After cake is cool, cut into squares.

I agree with you that there is nothing best than comfort food and there is nothing more relaxing than cooking, baking, and spending time in the kitchen creating new recipes. That is my pleasure every night!

Oh dear! Crumb cake is such a weakness of mine. I do feel myself about to leap from my low carb diet :)
