    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum and am looking for some new jersey style, thick crumb, crumb cake recipes. I've been ordering crumb cakes for a few months now through Crumb Cake Creations, but I want to start making my own. I've had a hard time figuring out how this baker gets her crumbs so thick. I've scoured the internet to find similar recipes. Open to suggestions!

    It's been a while since I've made one of these, but mother used to make them all the time, and I think she just pressed globules of dough together to make the larger crumbs on some of the cakes - mmmm, I remember one with apricot filling with jam mother made from the tree in our yard...

    Check out this recipe, which says to do just that - break up the crumb mixture into pea sized pieces - although I think your bakery might make them even a bit bigger.

    I would recommend either of these recipes, just double or triple the the amount for the crumb topping. Make sure you pat the crumb mixture into large "golf ball" sized crumbs, cover the top of the cake with them and fill in the spaces with the remaining coarse crumbs. icon_wink.gif

    (you may have to adjust the ratio of cinnamon, flour and sugar in the crumb mixture to get the flavor you are looking for)

    Here 'ya go.

    The recipe is from a former colleague when we lived in NJ. Loved the way she would say "OH ... MY ... GAWD!" with a heavy New Jersey accent. icon_smile.gif

    This Easter cake looks great! This year I’m taking a breather and getting my Easter Dessert from Crumb Cake Creations. They offer many different types of cakes, my favorite being pumpkin. My kids enjoyed the cake so much at our last family gathering, I wouldn’t think about NOT having another new jersey style crumb cake around for Easter! Jennifer does an incredible job baking and her cakes are definitely worth trying! You nor your family will be disappointed!

    Glad you found some place that works for you and I am sure all of us rely on commercially prepared foods from time to time. But we are about baking for ourselves here and will be glad to help you find recipes to make these treats at home.
