Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 11x7 inch pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

This recipe was easy to follow and quick to make. But definitely more crumb topping needs to be saved for the yummy part of the cake! over all, it was just okay. not the best stuff to show off though.

I made this crumb cake this morning and by bed time there was only 1/4 of it left. My family thought it was delectible. I did make a few alterations. I used 2 eggs, and since I didn't have buttermilk I used regular milk. I also added 1/2 cup brown sugar to the mix for the crumb topping. Oh, I added a sprinkle of Tastefully Simple Mulling Spice too! I am sure this will be enjoyed by our family for years to come!

A wonderful easy tastee crumb cake. Goes very well with a fresh ground bold cup of coffee. I like lots of nummy topping, I added half again the butter and sugars on top. Will be a once a month treat, at least.

very moist and delicious. i exchanged cloves for allspice and added to the crumb topping about 2tbs shredded coconut and maybe a scant tbs of brown sugar. truly delightful cake.

Love, love this cake - I never use anything but butter. Can t go wrong here.

Maybe I shouldn't have done this here but didn't want to go buy buttermilk so instead I soured regular milk with lemon, accordingly. The texture came out more like a sponge cake than a crumb cake. The topping looked almost raw even though the cake itself was completely done. I just don't quite get it.
