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.
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
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
