This Strawberry Crumb Cake is incredibly easy to make. Soft, fluffy vanilla cake is topped with a layer of fresh ripe strawberries that get jammy when baked, and a buttery, crunchy crumble topping. This cake takes only minutes to mix together.


Units Scale


  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Crumble Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Strawberry Layer

  • 2 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped (1/2 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour


1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8 baking pan with parchment paper.

2. In a medium size bowl, add all ingredients for Crumble Topping. Use a fork to mix/claw ingredients together, until combined. Set in refrigerator and allow mixture to cool/set.

3. In a large bowl, add oil, sugar, eggs, sour cream and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk just until batter is combined.

4. Pour batter into prepared pan.

5. Add strawberries and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour to a bowl. Toss to combine. This helps ensure the strawberries don’t sink.

6. Sprinkle the strawberries over top of the batter. Crumble the crumble topping over top of the blueberries. Bake in preheated oven for 42-48 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

7. Allow to fully cool in pan. Slice into 9 pieces, serve and enjoy!
