I LOVE how pretty this Cinnamon Streusel Cake turned out! I seriously couldn’t do it justice with the pictures. It. Is. Gorgeous.
I am definitely not someone who makes those oh-so-beautiful cakes…I see them in my cookbooks, but never quite achieve them. If I can do it, so can you! (Remember, I am the girl who made the cookies that wouldn’t bake!)
Cinnamon Streusel Cake
The great part is that it is easy!
My mother-in-law stopped by about the time this Cinnamon Streusel Cake was done. When I popped it out onto the plate, she commented how beautiful it was, but that it must have been too much work.
Not at all!
It is just like making any cake. I can remember my mom flouring her cake pans when I was little, so flouring the can was a little nostalgic for me. And I love how simple the crumble on top was to make. While I am a little better at making a butter crumble since getting my pastry cutter, this one was so easy!
It’s okay…I won’t tell anyone that the beautiful Cinnamon Streusel Cake you are serving them is so easy to make. It can be our little secret. 😉
Helpful Tip: If you don’t have a handy dandy 2lb metal coffee can or equivalent laying around, you can always use a bowl like this.
- 16 oz pkg pound cake mix prepared
- 1/4 c brown sugar packed
- 1 T all-purpose flour
- 1 t cinnamon
- 1/4 c nuts finely chopped
- Heavily grease a 2lb metal coffee can or equivalent and coat thickly with flour
- Pour prepared pound cake batter in floured can
- Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nuts and sprinkle on the top of your batter
- Take 6-8 paper towels and cover your can (to keep condensation from dripping on your cake)
- Put your can in your crock pot
- Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours (watching closely)
- Run a butter knife around the edge of the cake to loosen from can
- Flip out of can onto a plate and then flip back right-side-up on another plate
Slow Cooker Recommendation
I used my classic crock pot from I’m guessing early 80’s…while I couldn’t find one exactly like mine to link to, this one is pretty close. If not, you will want to use a tall, round crock pot. Mine wasn’t quite tall enough, so I had to improvise. I took foil (shiny side up) and covered the top of my can and crock. It worked perfectly!
