Old Time Crumb Cake


  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of butter
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and butter a 9 inch cake pan or pan of your choice. Dust the pan with flour if you want to turn the cake out onto a plate.

Add to a mixing bowl 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour, ½ teaspoon of cinnamon, ½ teaspoon of nutmeg and ½ cup of butter.  Rub the ingredients together with your finger tips. Reserve ½ cup of this crumb mixture in a smaller bowl.

Add to the mixture in the larger bowl 1 heaping cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, ½ cup of milk and 1 egg. Mix well. Pour the batter into a baking pan, level and sprinkle the top with the reserved ½ cup crumb mixture.

Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool before cutting.
