Easy New York Crumb Cake Recipe

I am not a big fan of sweets, but I could not stop eating this Shortcut New York Crumb Cake. OMG! It was SO good. I couldn’t walk past it without stopping to sneak a bite. This cake is great for breakfast or dessert. Really anytime of the day is just fine to have a piece of this cake!

How to Make Crumb Cake with Cake Mix

This recipe is called Shortcut New York Crumb Cake because I used a boxed cake mix for the cake. Make the cake as directed on the box. Pour the batter into a 9×13-inch cake pan and top it with a quick cinnamon crumb topping made with sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, and cake flour. Pop the cake in the oven and that is it.

  • You can use any flavor of cake mix you prefer.
  • I don’t have cake flour. Can I use regular all-purpose flour? You can make homemade cake flour with 1 cup of all-purpose flour and 2 Tablespoons of corn starch. For this recipe, you will need 3½ cups of all-purpose flour and 7 Tablespoons of corn starch.
  • Can I make a crumb cake in advance? Yes! You can make this and store it in an air-tight container. It will keep 3 to 4 days.

    1. They aren't the same thing, so I don't think Bisquick would work in this recipe.

      You can make your own cake flour – Measure out the flour – for every 1 cup of flour remove 2 Tbsp of flour. Now add 2 Tbsp of Cornstarch for every 1 cup of flour. Sift 5-6 times and it's ready-to-use cake flour.

      SO measure 3-1/2 cups flour, remove 7 tablespoons of flour, add 7 tablespoons of corn starch and sift a few times.

  1. Steph, As always I love your "stuff" but I have a question on this one: can all-purpose flour be substituted for the cake flour? Keep on dazzling us :o)

  2. I love crumb cake. I think I might try this but add a layer of cream cheese somewhere in it, like an entemanns cream cheese crumb cake 🙂

  4. I try to make something every Sunday evening for my hubby to take to work to have with a cup of tea in the morning. I usually make a pound cake of some kind or shortbreads, but this looks like a perfect thing to put in the rotation! He's a huge pecan fan. Do you think maybe 3/4 cup or so, chopped small and thrown into the crumble would work ok?

  5. This reminds me of my mom's coffee cake. All my nieces have contacted me for the recipe. This is a little easier and has the same delicious crumb topping. Thanks for sharing.

    Wishes for tasty dishes, Linda
