How to Make Cinnamon Oat Crumble
One of the reasons I love this cinnamon oat crumble is because it has an amazing taste and texture, (you all know I love a good texture in my cake!) and it only takes a few simple steps to make.
First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and then set it aside.
While your oven is preheating, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, and salt into a medium bowl. Mix it by hand with a wooden spoon until the mixture resembles clumps of sand.
Spread the crumble over the parchment paper and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring halfway through. The crumble should be golden brown. Let it cool completely and then crumble the mixture into smaller pieces if needed.
My Favorite Cakes Using Cinnamon Oat Crumble
Cake #1: Peach Crisp Cake
This Peach Crisp Cake is one of my classic cakes that I love to make (& of course, eat)! This cake honestly tastes like you are eating a peach crisp, and the buttercream is like the ice cream on top. What a delicious treat! I’ve made a few tweaks to this recipe to make sure you really taste that peach flavor. This cake is filled with tender yellow cake layers, cinnamon oat crumble, peach filling, and a whipped vanilla bean buttercream.
Cake #2: Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Cake
My Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Cake is so yummy! It’s based on one of my favorite desserts my husband Ryan’s parents make every summer. It has tender white cake layers, a strawberry and rhubarb filling, cinnamon oat crumble, and a whipped vanilla bean buttercream. The buttercream almost tastes like vanilla bean ice cream, which goes perfectly with the cinnamon oat crumble! And the strawberry and rhubarb flavors only compliment that duo even more.
