For The Cake

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract or sugar
  • 1/2 cup labneh (cow labneh) or sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mixed berries, frozen or fresh dusted in flour so they don't sink

For The Crumble

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar if not found just replace with white
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • 6 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup shaved almonds


For The Cake

  • Preheat oven to 180C
  • In a bowl, whisk by hand or stand mixer, eggs, sugar and vanilla until fluffy and pale
  • Add the labneh, and mix
  • Add oil and mix
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined
  • Make sure you dust your berries with flour, add them to the batter and gently fold them in
  • Pour batter into greased and floured loaf pan ( I use a 9 inch)


  • Rub the crumble ingredients (except the almonds) between your fingers until you get a sand like texture. This recipe makes a lot of crumble, you don't need to use it all
  • Top the cake batter with crumble and then top the crumble with the almonds
  • Bake in a well preheated oven for 35-40 min
