Caramel Crumb Cake happens to be the one dessert that I make probably 12 or more times a year because it’s definitely a crowd pleaser and people rave about it! 

How to make: 


Do in these exact steps for the best outcome 


Preheat oven 350 degrees 


In a medium saucepan melt 3 sticks butter and take off the stove.

Mix in

3 cups flour

1 1/2 cups Caramel Javamelts or any of our 3 other flavors 

1 1/4 cup confectioners sugar 

4 tsp cinnamon 

2 tsp baking powder 

Stir well and then let sit.  Periodically go back and stir to break up and to let the crumb mixture dry out a bit 


Butter a Corning Ware baking lasagna pan or size casserole dish 14”x11” 4.5 liter and sprinkle some of the dry cake mix on the bottom if you forget the cake mix use flour 


In a stand mixer mix together 

1 box Dunkin Hines Classic Yellow cake mix 

1 1/3 cup water 

3 eggs

2 tbs vanilla 

Medium high speed for 2 minutes 


Pour batter into greased and floured baking dish


Bake almost until done. Check after 18-20 min.  If you gently shake the baking dish and the center of the cake giggles, bake for a few more minutes.  You can’t put the crumb topping on if it sinks into the cake.  

Before the cake is completely baked through break up crumb topping and cover the cake and then bake for about another 7 minutes. Take out when the fork comes clean when you put it into the center of the cake. 


Let cool completely 


Top with confectionery sugar


Garnish platter with any festive candies, wrapped or unwrapped.  Serve and enjoy!!  


**I like to make this the day before and then I wait to top with the confectionery sugar just before I am ready to serve it
