Boardwalk Bakery Crumbcakes Recipe!

Boardwalk Bakery Chocolate Chip Crumbcake Recipe

One of my favorite hobbies besides going to Disney Parks and photography is baking! My Disney recipes have previously been featured on Chip and Company and Mouze Kateerz.  I wanted to put all of my Disney kitchen adventures in one place so it would be easy for all my readers to find the recipes they would like to recreate! 

When I stayed at the Boardwalk Inn for the first time in 2008 I picked up one of the official Walt Disney World cookbooks just so I could make the delicious Crumbcakes! 

With some advice from the chef over on the Disney Food Blog I decided to make these as cupcakes!  I adjusted the recipe slightly from the cookbook (Biggest change...I omitted the lemon extract)

These are easy to make completely from scratch.
Even if you are a novice baker you can pull these off effortlessly.


  • 1 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp cake flour

  • 1 cup cornstarch

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 2 1/2 sticks of butter (softened)
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

  • 4 large eggs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Combine: 1 cup + 2 tbsp cake flour with cornstarch and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat 1 cup sugar, 1 cup plus 2 tbsp butter, 1/2 tsp vanilla together in a medium bowl until light and creamy.  
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one.  Before last egg add 2-3 tbsp of flour mixture. Beat until creamy.
  • Fold in remaining flour mixture with spatula. 
  • Stir in chocolate chips!*
  • In a small bowl mix together remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tbsp butter, and 3/4 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup flour with a fork.  This should be crumbly. (Note: I made double the amount of crumbs on my version)
  • Spray cupcake pan or add liners and fill with batter.  (I filled to 3/4 which yielded 18 cupcakes.)  
  • Sprinkle crumb mixture generously over top of cupcakes.
  • Bake 30-40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Mix it up:

*I bought a package of the chocolate & peanut chips mix when I made these once and didn't realize until I was baking.  This variation tasted amazing so if you are a peanut butter fan give it a try!
