Ingredients

For the crumb cake

  • 1/3 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup melted butter
  • 1 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Cups cubed wedding cake, icing removed
  • 1 Cup fruit compote (recipe below)

For the fruit compote

  • 2 Cups chopped fruit or berries
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • Pinch of grated lemon zest

Directions

For the crumb cake

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

To make the streusel topping, combine the first 5 ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. Add the cubed cake to a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Spread the fruit compote over cake and top with the streusel topping.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean when inserted near the center.

For the fruit compote

In a small saucepan, combine all of the ingredients and cook over medium-low heat until fruit has become soft and most of the liquid has evaporated. Taste and add more sugar if needed. Can be stored in an airtight jar for up to 10 days.

Fruit Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Fruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
