Harvest Fruit Crumble Cake


Mmmmm!!! Babcia’s Fruit Crumble Cake – the best!

My Mom made this cake with any fruit she had around the house, including dried fruit such as cranberries, prunes and apricots but I think everyone’s favourite was plum cake made with blue plums. They’re not usually great for eating, but when baked into a cake such as this one, they are elevated to Amazing Taste status!

I have used spelt flour and brown sugar, because that’s what I had in the house, but you can use all purpose flour and any sugar just as easily.


In a medium bowl whisk together 2 eggs and 1/2 cup sugar (here I have used brown sugar)




add 2 Tablespoons of sour cream and blend in



add a teaspoon of good quality vanilla extract and blend in



add 1/2 cup of oil and whisk in




In a large bowl sift together 2 cups of flour, 3 teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch of salt



Pour wet ingredients over dry and blend in lightly, until just combined20130917-161447.jpg



spread evenly on bottom of 8″ square, parchment lined baking pan



push sliced fruit deeply into batter. It’s better to go heavy on the fruit.



for the crumble, mix 2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Combine with fingers



and sprinkle rough chunks over the prepared fruit and cake batter



Bake in a 325 degree oven for about an hour, until a toothpick inserted in the centre (of the batter) comes out clean
