For the Batter

  • 1 box King Arthur Gluten Free Muffin Mix Trust me on this one!
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup milk of your choice I use unsweetened almond milk

For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

For the Crumb Topping

  • 1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour or baking mix I ue King Arthur, but any brand will work
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees 
  • In a large mixing bowl, add muffin mix, eggs, oil, and milk, and stir to combine
  • Pour half of the batter into an 8x8 or 9x9 greased baking dish
  • Make the filling by mixing 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon with 1/4 cup melted butter
  • Spread the filling over the top of the batter in the baking dish
  • Top with remaining half of batter
  • Make the crumb topping by adding flour, brown sugar, and cold butter cubes to a small mixing bowl
  • Squeeze the butter with your fingertips. The warmth from your fingers will soften the butter to allow it to combine with the flour and brown sugar. Continue squeezing and mixing the topping until it looks crumbly (pic below)
  • Add the topping to the baking dish on top of the batter
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 32-38 minutes
  • Batter will seem wiggly when it's done, so you'll cover the dish with foil and leave it on the counter for an hour to set
  • After an hour, the cake will be set and you can dig in!
