How to Make a Delicious German Crumble Cake

In high school, finding out a brand-new dish (specifically dessert dishes) was always my preferred part of a foreign language and culture class. One day throughout German in my sophomore year, I coordinated with two other classmates to make German Crumble Cake from a publication. It was rather good, if I do state so myself.

7 years later, it continues to be among my favorite desserts to bake.  It’s a great recipe!

Handling this German dessert dish is a real ‘hands on’ experience, as you’ll see. And like other German desserts, it consists of a large bit of butter.

German Crumble Cake
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of sugar
4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda (SODA, not POWDER … I made that error once and … ick!).
1 egg.
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract.
1 pinch of salt.
1 tablespoon of cornstarch.
3 cups of fresh fruit or a container of fruit.
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract.
1 tablespoon of corn starch sugar for taste.


1) Mix all ingredients for the dough together by hand so that it becomes crumbly. (You can utilize a baking board or a big bowl).
2) Grease a cake pan and press half of the fall apart into the bottom of the pan.
3) Cook fruit with cornstarch in a medium pot or pan for 2 minutes, and spread out the fruit filling on the dough.
4) Sprinkle the remainder of the dough onto the fruit, and bake for about 40 minutes at around 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
It also depends on how dark the pan you utilize is. Be sure to keep examining on the crumble cake every couple of minutes.
Even if your German Crumble Cake didn’t turn out exactly right, not to stress. My approach with food has always been “As long as it tastes excellent, I don’t care if it’s imperfect.”.

Try fooling around with the recipe. I typically never ever follow dishes to the letter. For this one, I utilize a larger glass pan and just 2 containers of fruit. Figure out what works for you. Practice making this German dessert recipe and any other desserts, and you’ll ultimately settle into your own style of baking, like every other individual.
