"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Do not skimp on the measurements for the streusel. This cake is even better with a double streusel topping! The streusel is the best!
