  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp bakng soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz jam

Crumb Topping

  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all of the cake ingredients together in a bowl. I mixed mine by hand and it worked perfectly.
  • Spread half of the cake mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. It’s a little bit difficult to spread and it should be a thinner layer.
  • Spread the jam on top of the cake layer.
  • Drop the second half of the cake batter by the spoonful on top of the jam. This should mostly cover the jam but you can spread it a little to help cover the jam. It’s okay if the jam shows through.
  • Mix together the crumb topping ingredients. It will be a dry mixture.
  • Sprinkle the crumb topping over the top of the cake layer.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes.


As mentioned, use as much or as little jelly, jam, or preserves that you want and you can use any flavor that you want as well.
You could also use a different crumb topping if you wanted. I prefer the oatmeal because it adds a little bit of crispiness to the cake. However, both types of crumb topping are wonderful and taste amazing. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed with either of them.
If you don’t want to use milk you can also use 1 full cup of greek yogurt instead. I suppose you could also use 1 cup of milk instead of greek yogurt as well, but I haven’t tried that yet. I think it will make the batter more runny and you’ll probably end up with a thinner cake. Even though it will taste the same I prefer a nice fluffy cake.
