Best Pan to Use for Crumble Cake

I suggest using a 9-inch springform pan for this cake. A 9×9-inch square baking pan or 9-inch cake pan would work as well. The removable sides of a springform pan make removing and slicing the crumb cake a lot easier.

How to Store Raspberry Crumble Cake

Raspberry crumble cake can be stored at room temperature or in the fridge for 3-4 days if tightly covered in plastic wrap or foil.

It can also be stored in an airtight container and frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw on the counter overnight before serving.

Ingredients for the Raspberry Crumble Cake

Butter – For the crumble you do want to use cold butter, but for the cake it needs to be room temperature. If you used salted butter, omit any additional salt.

Flour – Spoon and level your flour so that the cake doesn’t end up inadvertently too dense.

Sugar – We use a mix of brown and white sugar for the crumble to get just the right about of moisture, flavour and sweetness.

Cinnamon – If you are somehow out of cinnamon, you can swap with any other warming spice like nutmeg or all spice.

Baking Powder – To leaven the batter. Make sure it is still active.

Salt – Brings out all the flavours, but skip if you use salted butter.

Eggs – Make sure your egg is at room temperature before starting.

Vanilla Extract – Use pure vanilla extract for the best flavour, but artificial is just fine too.

Sour Cream – Full fat sour cream is best here.

Buttermilk – Make sure your buttermilk is room temperature before starting. If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand make it yourself by adding half a tbsp of lemon juice to 1/2 cup milk.

Raspberries – Fresh raspberries are of course best here but you can use frozen. If you opt for frozen, fold them into the batter while still frozen.

Lemon – You will want to use a fresh lemon to get that zest, the zest adds loads of citrus flavour. Be sure to use citrus zester.

Powdered Sugar – Just icing sugar or confectioners sugar.
