Thread: Seriously Chocolate Crumb Cake

    Default Seriously Chocolate Crumb Cake

    I recently had what was called "Seriously Chocolate Crumb Cake" which was put out by a company called "Something Sweet, Inc." It was absolutely fabulous, and I would love to be able to make it myself. However, I have had no luck finding a recipe on the web that seems to replicate it.

    The cake part is rich and chocolatey, and the crumbs are the same, and are soft, rich and chocolately, not like a traditional crumb topping texture.

    The closest I found was a chocolate crumb cake using a cake mix for both the bottom and topping, but it doesn't sound exactly like what I'm looking for.

    I was hoping someone might be able to help.

    Thank you!

    Hi Chocolate Moose,

    Not sure if you meant you wanted the recipe I was looking for, or the one I said I found, so I'll post the one I found. The moreI think about it, the more I think it might be fairly close, and I might just get myself a cake mix and try it while waiting to see if anyone knows of a more specific recipe. I ususally like to bake from scratch, but what the hey.

    The one concern I have is the topping ingredients. It seems like an awful lot for a 10x15 cake, and 3 sticks of butter seems too much, but that's what the recipe said. I might do some research in the meantime and will note here if I find anything different, and will probably try less butter and more cocoa to begin with.


    CHOCOLATE CRUMB CAKE

    1 box chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients listed on the package directions to prepare the cake)

    FOR TOPPING:

    3 c. flour
    1 1/2 c. sugar
    3 sticks melted butter
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1/4 c. cocoa powder

    Prepare cake mix according to package directions and pour into greased and floured 10 x 15 inch pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes (or until done).

    While cake is cooking, combine topping ingredients in a large bowl and mix until large crumbs form. Place crumb mixture evenly over hot cake and return to oven for 10 more minutes.

    Remove cake from oven and cool. Sprinkle liberally with confectioners' sugar. (If you like alot of crumbs, you may double the topping and cook an extra 5 minutes.)

    Ours is in the oven now .... i baked a cake mix in a 9 by 13 pan, and only used 2/3 of the crumb recipe from Kookiefool. It was PLENTY.

    Now, if i could master the way to get the cocoa incorporated before the crumbs turned to a ball, that's be good ...

    Chocolate Moose, Please let me know how you think the recipe turned out!

    My suggestion to incorporate the cocoa better would be to use the same procedure I use to make cocoa brownies, which seems to work fine.

    Melt the butter in a saucepan on a low heat along with the cocoa powder, and whisk together well while it's melting. Then remove from the heat and then add the rest of the ingredients.
