Crumb Bar Cake

I call this a Crumb Bar Cake. It was suppose to be Crumb Bars, but I poured it into too small of a baking dish, and it is now a cake. But it's already gone! It just melts in your mouth. Really nice texture. Plus I had to share it with the neighbors since they kindly gave us some yellow tomatoes. See the recipe for Crumb Bar Cake below.

Crumb Bar Cake

    Crusty Crumbly Mixture:
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter cut in cubes
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • Filling:
  • 1 - 8oz. pkg of cream cheese - soft
  • 1 cup fruit (your choice, such as blueberries/strawberries)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix your Crusty Crumbly ingredients like you're making a pie crust. Butter a baking dish. Pour 2/3's of the crumbly mixture in and lightly press.

Preheat oven to 350°. Mix cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Now you have an option. You can mix your fruit into the cream cheese mix, or your can swirl your fruit on top of the cream cheese (which is what I did. I was using thawed strawberries which I crunched to tiny bits.)

If you have raw fruit, such as blueberries/raspberries, then go ahead and blend them in. Mix it real good. Then pour the cream cheese mix on the Crusty crumbs in the dish, and sprinkle on the remaining crumbly mix.

Bake 35-45 minutes (depending on what size dish you used. In my 9x12 I went 50 minutes.) Wait till it's slightly brown on top.

So, if you actually want Bars, go with a dish that's at least 11x17.
