Bisquick Velvet Crumb Cake Recipes

I’m sure velvet crumb cakes have been around for quite some time. I remember my grandmother making a similar crumb cake with coconut topping, and it was heavenly. There are many variations today, compared to long ago. I have compiled a few different ones in which to choose from, but first, let’s have a look at some history of the velvet crumb cake.

  • Velvet crumb cake was believed to be invented in Germany in the 19th century
  • Sometimes eaten as a breakfast food
  • The crumb topping is usually comprised of butter, sugar, and flour
Red Velvet Crumb Cake

Red Velvet Crumb Cake

This is the perfect recipe to make for a holiday, or whenever you feel like eating cake. I believe the Bisquick added to this cake recipe gives it a much softer texture rather than using regular flour and is one of the best red velvet crumb cakes I have ever enjoyed.

Ingredients
  

Cake

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup butter (room temperature)
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp red food coloring

Crumb Topping

  • 5 tbsp melted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup Bisquick
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees. Grease a cake pan and line with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, blend two cups of Bisquick, four tablespoons of cocoa powder, and one-half teaspoon of baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, with an electric mixer, beat two eggs. Add one-half cup of room temperature butter, three table spoons of vegetable oil, one cup of sugar, and two teaspoons of vanilla. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  • In a small bowl, stir one-half cup of buttermilk and two tablespoons of red food coloring until blended together. Add to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  • Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, mixing for approximately three minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients needed for the crumb topping together using a fork. You will want a crumb-like texture, so if the mixture is too moist add a little more Bisquick, and if too dry, add a little more melted butter.
  • Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the top of the cake batter. Bake for approximately forty minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Angel Velvet Crumb Cake

This recipe reminds me of the one my grandmother used to make with coconut crumb topping, although she didn’t use walnuts in her recipe. You can omit the walnuts if preferred, but they add a great taste and texture, pairing wonderfully with a cup of coffee.
