  • Step 1/4

    Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Butter the baking pan and line with parchment paper, letting a couple of inches hang over the sides for easy cake removal from the pan later. Butter the parchment paper lightly, too. To make the crumb topping, whisk together sugar, flour, oats, and salt. Add butter and use your fingers or a food processor to pulse until large clumps form. Refrigerate until ready to use.
