Homemade Crumb Cake

This delicious crumb cake recipe comes from our friend, Alice Smith. It's the first time I'd ever baked a cake in a 17x11x1 pan. It was simple and tasty! It reminded me of the crumb cake we got from the bakery when I was a child. This cake takes no time to make, so you can make it in the morning and take it warm and fresh to your Christmas brunch!

Before you start baking - make sure that your cinnamon is fresh - it will make all the difference in the world and guarantee you a tasty and delicious cake. Find out on our informative cooking spices page.

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 lb. margarine - very soft
1/4 lb. butter - very soft
4 eggs
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease 17 x 11 x 1 pan

Place all ingredients in bowl and beat with electric mixer until thoroughly mixed. Spread batter evenly into pan.


1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 heaping tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 lb. melted butter

Stir dry ingredients together in bowl until well blended. Slowly pour melted butter into dry ingredients as you carefully mix with a fork. Mix gently, you want small and large crumbs, you don't want to mash them.
