Breakfast Crumb Cake Recipe

Breakfast Crumb Cake Recipe - The Candleberry® Candle Company

We are obsessed with this yummy crumb cake recipe by the Country Cook. It's perfect for a Sunday breakfast or to make as a delicious dessert to enjoy after dinner. Inspired by our Vanilla Crumb Cake Candle, this Homemade Double Crumb Cake has double the crumb topping for double the flavor! 



For the cake:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup milk, (or buttermilk for more moistness)
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the crumble topping:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, melted and cooled (2 sticks)
  • powdered sugar, for dusting


For the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. (For a thinner cake, use a 9 x13 baking dish)
  • In a medium bowl combine 1 ½ cups flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir until combined.
  • In another bowl, combine egg, milk, oil and vanilla extract. Stir until it's all combined.
  • Combine flour mixture with milk mixture and mix well. Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish


For the crumble topping:

  • In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Mix it
  • Then pour in melted butter and stir until combined and clumps begin to form.
  • Sprinkle those clumps (crumbs) all over the cake batter. If you are using an 8x8 baking dish - it will be thick.
  • Bake for about 40-50 minutes for an 8x8 dish. Bake for about 30-40 minutes for a 9x13 baking dish.
  • Use a toothpick to check for doneness (as oven times vary.) Check around the 30-minute mark.
  • Crumb topping should be golden brown, and a toothpick inserted to the middle of the cake should come out clean.
  • Allow cake to cool then dust with powdered sugar and serve.
