Chocolate Crumb Cake – chocolate cake mix topped with an easy homemade crumb topping. Chocolate cake mix, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and cake flour. Super easy to make and tastes great. This cake is OUTRAGEOUSLY good! I could not stop eating it! Great for a crowd. We ate this for breakfast and dessert.
I love a good crumb cake and this Chocolate Crumb Cake is a new favorite! It is great for breakfast or dessert! The best part about this cake is that it is super easy to make. I cheated and used a box of cake mix for the base of the crumb cake. Once the cake was mixed up, I topped it with a quick and easy homemade chocolate crumb topping. The cake was ready for the oven before the oven was preheated!
We ate this Chocolate Crumb Cake for dessert with some vanilla ice cream. Go big or go home, right? It was SO good!! I shared some of the cake with a friend, and she loved it too! This cake would be great if you have overnight guests or an early morning tailgate! It is a real crowd pleaser!
The cake can be made a day or two in advance and stored in an air-tight container. I usually only make this the day or night before we eat it because I have ZERO self-control around this cake! LOL!
