Eggnog Breakfast Crumble Crunch Cake
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon + an extra 1/4 teaspoon
- 1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar + and extra 1/3 cup
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup eggnog
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. In another small bowl, combine flours, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon, then whisk to combine.
In a large bowl, add butter and sugars and whisk until smooth. Whisk in eggs one a time, mixing until completely combined, then stir in vanilla extract. Stir in dry ingredients, mixing until a batter forms, then whisk in eggnog until smooth. Pour half of the batter in the baking dish, then sprinkle the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture over top. Cover with remaining batter, gently using a spatula to spread over sugar if needed. Don’t worry if some of the sugar peeks through. Top with the crumble below.
1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over cake, then bake for 30-35 minutes, or until cake is set in the middle. While cake is baking, make glaze below. After removing cake from oven, immediately poke holes all throughout the cake with a toothpick, then drizzle glaze over top.
Note: You can use dairy or non-dairy eggnog. In the last month I’ve made this with cow’s milk eggnog and coconut milk eggnog – great result each time!
