Orange Cake with Crumble is a delightful dessert that combines the bright, citrusy flavor of oranges with a sweet and crunchy crumble topping.

To make this cake, start by preparing a simple orange-flavored cake batter. This typically includes flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, butter, orange zest, and orange juice. 

While the cake is baking, prepare the crumble topping. This is made by combining flour, sugar, butter, and sometimes oats or nuts until crumbly. The crumble is sprinkled over the top of the cake batter before baking, adding a deliciously crunchy texture.

Once the cake is baked and has cooled slightly, it can be served warm or at room temperature. The combination of the moist orange-flavored cake and the crispy, sweet crumble topping is sure to be a hit with anyone who tries it.

Orange Cake with Crumble is perfect for any occasion, from a casual afternoon snack to a special dessert for a celebration. It’s easy to make and bursting with citrusy flavor, making it a wonderful treat for citrus lovers everywhere.
