Crumb Topping Mixture
Crumb Cake Batter
  1. To make the crumb topping put flour, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon into mixing bowl. Working crumb topping mixture with fingers by rubbing them together to get a crumble consistency. Next measure all ingredients to make crumb cake, this called mise en place.
  2. Next put the cake mix and instant pudding in mixing bowl. Sir with whisk until ingredients are combined.
  3. Continue by adding the eggs, oil and buttermilk into bowl with dry cake ingredients.
  4. Now whisk the cake batter ingredients together. Using wire whisk or hand mixer beating for 2 minutes on Meduim speed. The batter should be smooth and lump free.
Crumb Cake Assembly
  1. First spray each muffin well with baking spray. Using scoop or a spoon filling each muffin well 1/3 rd full with cake batter. I am using jumbo muffin pans, but regular muffin pan work also yields 24 portions.
  2. Next spoon about tablespoon of jam on top of the cake batter.
  3. Try to have the filling to be in the center of the batter.
  4. Next scoop or spoon just enough cake batter over top of the jam. The muffin wells should be about 3/4 full.
  5. Continue with next step by using spoon to sprinkle a generous amount of crumb topping over each cake batter.
  6. Place crumb cakes into 350 degree oven and bake for about 20 minutes. Testing with toothpicks, if the toothpick comes out clean the crumb cakes are ready to be removed from the oven.
  7. Carefully remove crumb cakes from muffin pan and place on wire rack too cool. When they are cooled remove them from the rack and place on sheet tray, then cover them well with plastic wrap. They can be left out at room temperature or refrigerated for 5 days.
  8. Plate the crumb cakes in attractive manner, I like to cut them in half to show off wonderful jam filling. Enjoy
