This is a very easy recipe for a moist cake with a buttery crumb topping. The ground cloves make this different from other crumb cakes.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 1/2 cups (185g) plain flour
  • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk

Preparation:12min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:37min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour a 20 x 30cm cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl mix flour and sugar together. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1/2 cup of this mixture as crumbs for top of cake.
  3. To the remaining flour mixture stir in the cinnamon, cloves, bicarb soda and salt. Blend in egg and buttermilk. Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
