Crumb Cake II

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a moist, not-too-sweet cake with a butter crumb topping, lightly spiced with cinnamon and cloves.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 11x7 inch pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix flour and sugar together. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup of this mixture as crumbs for top of cake.
  • To the remaining flour mixture stir in the cinnamon, cloves, baking soda and salt. Blend in egg and buttermilk. Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
