“There is nothing better on a lazy Sunday morning than a fresh pot of coffee, the Sunday paper, and a slice of this moist, full-flavored crumb-cake. Make it the night before and warm a slice in the microwave the following morning --Let your tastebuds take you to heaven!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the Crumb Topping ingredients; taste and adjust the spices to your liking.
  3. In a medium saucepan add sugar, raisins, shortening, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, toasted walnuts and perked coffee; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low for about 10 minutes; let cool.
  4. To the cooled mixture, add the baking soda, salt, flour, baking powder and applesauce. Mix well, but do not over-mix or the cake will be tough.
  5. Pour the batter into a well greased and floured 8-inch square or a 9-inch round layer cake pan. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the batter.
  6. Bake on top rack of pre-heated oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
