I like big fat crumb toppings on just about any dessert. Over the years, I’ve developed the perfect crumb topping recipe (some might call it a streusel topping) that I use on basically any recipe that I want to make even better!
This crumb topping recipe comes together really easily and can be added to the top of your dessert just before putting it into the oven.
Here’s the crumb topping on raspberry scones:
Here it is on coffee cake:
And, in what may be my absolute favorite variation, here is a cookie made entirely of crumbs. I call it a crumb cookie!
My crumb topping recipe uses oats, which makes it a little different from some of the others that you might find. The oats help give the crumbs more texture and structure and make them extra satisfying!
No matter how you choose to use this crumb topping recipe, you can’t go wrong. Please share pictures of your crumb-topped desserts on Instagram with the hashtag #cupcakeproject so I can see them all!
