Rye Chocolate Crumb Cake

April 27, 2015, 12:00 am

Adapted from Bon Appetit

Crumble Topping:
1/3 cup natural cane sugar  
¼ cup all-purpose flour  
¼ cup rye flour  
3 tablespoons cacao nibs  
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder  
¼ teaspoon kosher salt  
¼ cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces  
1 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 cup all-purpose flour  (or use all rye)
3/4 cup rye flour  
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder  
1 teaspoon baking powder  
¾ teaspoon baking soda  
¾ teaspoon salt  
¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature  
½ cup cane sugar  
1/3 cup (packed) light brown sugar
2 large eggs  
1 teaspoon vanilla extract  
3/4 cup buttermilk or kefir
¼ cup cooked squash or applesauce

  1. To make the crumble topping: whisk sugar, flour, cacao nibs, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium bowl until blended. Work in butter with your fingers to form large clumps; there should be no dry spots. Cover and chill.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9”-diameter cake pan with cooking spray and line with a round of parchement paper. Whisk all-purpose flour, rye flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a medium bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl and add eggs, squash or applesauce and vanilla; mix until blended, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low and add half of dry ingredients followed by buttermilk, mixing well after each addition. Repeat with remaining ingredients (this is a stiffer batter). Scrape into prepared pan. Scatter crumble over.
  3. Bake until cake starts to pull away from sides of pan and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 60–70 minutes. Let cake cool in pan on a wire rack before turning out.
