Cinnamon Crumb Streusel Topping
Thursday, 12 September 2013

One of my favourite cheats to take my desserts to the next level is a streusel topping! Every bite adds a sweet, cinnamon and buttery crunch to muffins, cakes, pies and breads. It is quick, easy and uses only store-cupboard ingredients - you can even make it in bulk and freeze in advance!

  • 100g (1/2 cup) packed light brown sugar
  • 62g (1/2 cup) plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 57g (4 tbsps) cold butter, cut into cubes
  1. Using a food processor: Blitz all the ingredients together until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
  2. By hand: Combine all the ingredients together, making sure that the butter doesn't melt. You can use pastry cutter to mix the butter into the dry ingredients.
  3. Sprinkle on top of dessert and bake as the recipe requires.

Alternatively, you can add desired nuts of your choice to spruce it up even further! I like to use a combination of walnuts and pecans then sprinkle it on top of my favourite banana bread before baking.
