I was honored to be included in volunteering for the day at a local soup kitchen. H2M Architects located in Melville, NY sponsored the lunch at The Mary Brennan Inn Soup Kitchen, Hempstead, NY. I tagged along with a few of the volunteers. Since I do not have a large amount of time to volunteer my time or products like the New York Coffee Cake, I was thrilled to be a part of this.
The day before I volunteered, I went to my kitchen and baked a special old fashioned coffee cake know from my company as the Classic Crumb Cake. I baked this in a half sheet pans. I made two of them. The NY style crumb cake, came out perfect!
The next morning, I drove to the inn with the crumb coffee cake. I was so excited to work in the kitchen and help in any way that I could. Since I brought the old fashioned coffee cake, I was put on deserts! I helped cut up the NY style crumb cake into individual servings. Then I was lucky enough to be behind the counter serving the guests.
While the guests were so thankful for the food, I was more thankful for the opportunity to volunteer my time and old fashioned coffee cake. I had one guest come up to me. He just had to meet me! He had about 8 pieces of the old fashioned coffee cake and he absolutely loved it. It’s hard to describe the wonderful feeling when a NY style crumb cake that you created was so much enjoyed by all. It is what keeps me going whenever I doubt myself. The fact that whoever tries my old fashioned coffee cake, loves it, is what makes it all worth it!
