Gluten Free Crumb Cake

So, this recipe is just what it says … my Mom’s crumb cake. I seriously remember this crumb cake recipe from when I was a kid … although, definitely not gluten free back then! My Mom has since told me that it was my Dad’s favourite cake when I was a kid … hence the reason I always saw it! But, I didn’t mind. It was always good and now I find out, super easy to make! Converting this recipe to GF, dairy free and soy free wasn’t all that hard, but getting the liquid to flour ratio took a bit of work. I made this today and after dinner, Mr. O and Miss C got to have a piece each. They both decided that they should have seconds and as Mr. O put it “I should have another piece Mommy because this cake is way too good for me!”  Yes, the logic of a 5 year old is often hilarious! And, in case you’re wondering … Mommy made them stop at one piece each!

This crumb cake makes a quick and easy dessert for a dinner party, or just as a snack mid-afternoon with a hot coffee. There may even be some that have tried it for breakfast! Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Gluten Free Crumb Cake

Preheat your oven to 350 F.

2 cups Jenny’s All Purpose Gluten Free Flour** (see previous posts)

1 tsp xanthan gum

1 cup white sugar

3/4 cup Earth Balance Soy Free Butter (cold from fridge)

Mix the above ingredients together using a pastry cutter. The result should be a crumby looking mixture.

DSC_0337Remove 1 cup of the crumble mixture and set aside. This will be your crumb topping.

Make a hole in the middle of the remaining mixture and add the following:

3/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used rice milk in this recipe, but any will do) + 1 tbsp white vinegar

1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup raisins

1 egg

DSC_0338Mix well in your stand mixer until the ingredients are well incorporated and the mixture is a thick cake batter consistency.

DSC_0343Line a 9 x 9 square baking dish with parchment paper. Spread the cake batter into the dish. Sprinkle your crumble mixture on top of the cake batter.

DSC_0342Bake at 350 F for 40 – 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let stand in the baking dish for approximately 10 minutes. After this remove the cake from the baking dish using the parchment paper and set on a wire rack to cool completely. (If you leave the cake in the baking dish to cool completely, the cake will become soggy). Slice into generous portions and Enjoy my Momma’s Gluten Free Crumb Cake! DSC_0345
