Farmhouse Cranberry Crumb Cake


This is a cake that I use to make all the time when I was looking for a cheap and quick cake for unexpected company.  Feel free to use whichever fruit is in season. I am pleased to announce that I have local raw honey for sale at Wynyates Farmhouse Bakery.



1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup granulated white sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 cup neutral vegetable oil

1/3 cup milk or sour cream

2 large eggs, beaten to blend

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1/3 cup rolled oats

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces


Optional Fruit Filling:

1 cup cranberries or other frozen fruit

1/3 cup orange juice

1/3 cup raw honey


Chef’s Note:If you plan to unfold the cake, use a spring form pan.

Preheat oven to 300 Degrees F.

Mix first 3 ingredients in large bowl. Add oil, milk, vanilla and eggs and stir until dry ingredients are just moistened.

Transfer batter to a greased 8-inch square or round baking pan. *

Sprinkle with brown sugar, oats then cinnamon. Dot top of batter with butter.

Bake until tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Cool slightly. Cut into squares to serve.

 *Fruit filling:

Combine ingredients in a small pot and heat until the berries have popped and then let cool. Spread gently over cake batter before sprinkling with the sugar, cinnamon and butter.

  1. Hello, nice to see our website. I found it through the SNAPD magazine and found your Farmhouse Banana Bread recipe in it a year ago almost. I was wondering how many bananas were required in the recipe so I looked at your site for it. I also see that it is changed from 1/3 cup butter to 1/2,..I wonder if this was a type error or should be the 1/2 cup butter. Thank you for this,..I am looking forward to making the Cranberry Cake as well,..something nice with a cup of tea perhaps,… sincerely,..Lois GREAT,…I was also looking to see if you sent out posts and I see you do,…I would love to receive them and nice recipes now and again if you do that,..many thanks,….Lois

    • Hi Lois, So nice to hear from you. Yes it was a typo and should read as 1/2 cup melted butter. Thank you for pointing that out to me. I am planning to post more recipes in 2018. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Cheers, Chef Elizabeth
