How do I prepare a vegan crumb cake with blackberries and poppy seeds?
Preparing the vegan version of a crumb cake is not much different from the traditional one. Instead of butter, we use nut butter or seed butter for the shortcrust pastry. Furthermore, we take a whole grain flour (i.e. spelt or wheat). And it is processed into a delicious shortcrust pastry. For the poppy seed filling, we prepare a semolina pudding and add poppy seeds. The blackberries will easily spread on the cake, which makes the vegan crumb cake so juicy. We prepare the crumbles from spelt flour and ground nuts, which you would probably like to snack on during the preparation. It’s what I do, that’s just part of baking, right?
How does the crumble cake stay fresh?
For storage, you should cover the vegan crumb cake with blackberries. I prefer to use a cake container and put it in the fridge.
What’s in the crumbs of crumble cake?
Classic crumbles are made with flour, butter and sugar. This healthy vegan and wfpb version is made with nut butter, whole wheat or spelt flour and a sugar alternative like maple syrup.
Can the vegan crumb cake be frozen?
Basically, you should not freeze a crumb cake. Unfortunately, I have not tried it myself. However, the semolina pudding could become a bit watery when thawed. I would freeze the crust and crumbles separately. So you can have quickly prepared a crumb cake with blackberries. All you have to do then is to prepare the poppy and semolina filling.
Can the vegan crumb cake with blackberries and poppy be kept in the fridge?
Here I give a clear yes. So the cake lasts a few days. Just make sure that it is kept secret so no ones takes it. E.g. In a cake container or the like.
Is Crumb Cake and Coffee Cake the same?
Both cakes look similar. The two cakes have a cake bottom and crumbs on top. The main difference between a crumb cake and a coffee cake is that a crumb cake has much more crumbs than a coffee cake. And the coffee cake has more of a cake bottom than the crumb cake and less streusel.
What is the difference between streusel and crumb?
Actually there is no difference between both. Streusel is the German word for crumbs and the Americans adopt the word Streusel in their vocabulary.
