Apple Butter Crumb Cake

Submitted by on September 17, 2009 – 4:56 pm

With freshly harvested apples being plucked from the trees as we speak, I had to create a recipe that celebrates the season! Our Oregon Growers Apple Butter gives this recipe a rich apple flavor and the crumb topping adds a delicious crunchy texture! This Apple Butter Crumb Cake will be the perfect companion to your morning coffee, or a delightful end to a fall dinner with friends.

Serves 6


1 Cup Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon Salt

1/3 Cup Sugar

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1 Stick Butter, Room Temperature

1 Egg

½ Cup Milk

3/4 Cup Oregon Growers Apple Butter

1 Tart Apple, Cored, Peeled and Grated*


*I recommend using Hood River Valley’s famous New Town Pippin!  


Crumb Topping

1 Cup Flour

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Stick Butter, Cold and cubed

1 Teaspoon Cinnamon


For the Crumb Topping

Combined all ingredients in a food processor and blend until turns a caramel color and has a crumbly texture, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.


For the Cake

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl, set aside.

In a stand up mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add egg until well beaten.

Add Apple Butter and grated apple just until blended in.

Alternating between the dry ingredients and the milk, starting with the dry ingredients, add in three additions, just until combined, do not over mix.

Spread the batter into a well greased 9 inch baking pan, then evenly spread the crumb topping over the entire cake.

Bake for 25-28 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
