A simple apple crumble cake recipe that is loaded with fresh, chunky apples. This recipe is made with a soft and buttery cinnamon spiced cake base and topped with a crunchy and sweet crumble topping!
Light and fluffy, this apple cake is sure to be a hit at any party. It can be baked the day ahead and kept at room temperature until ready to serve, or you can freeze it for up to three months.
The cake comes together with a mixture of butter, sugar and eggs that are mixed with an electric mixer. Next, add the flour, baking powder and salt, and mix it into the wet ingredients until well combined. Finally, add the chopped apples and gently fold them into the batter.
You can use a variety of different types of apples for this recipe, including Pink Lady (sweet) and Granny Smith (tart). However, it is important to choose a good quality, well ripened apple.
This recipe is best eaten on the day of making it as it is quite sweet and it will lose its flavour if left overnight in the fridge. To avoid this, make the stewed apples first and leave to cool before adding them to the cake.
Crumb topping is made using melted butter, which makes it incredibly quick and easy to make! To prepare the crumb topping, combine the melted butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar. Then, mix in the flour and cinnamon until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Then, sprinkle the mixture over the cake and bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.
Using large eggs is essential when making this recipe, so ensuring they are at room temperature before mixing them into the cake will ensure your cake rises and becomes fluffy. You can use a bowl of hot water to warm the eggs before using them, but if you do not have a bowl of hot water nearby, you can place the eggs in a microwave for about 10 minutes to bring them to room temperature.
To make this dessert, you will need a baking dish that is at least 9 inches wide and 15 inches long. This cake can be served warm with a scoop of ice cream or you can let it cool completely before slicing and serving.
This is a great recipe to make for your family and friends, as it is easy to make and very versatile. You can use your favourite type of apples, and it is also a great make ahead dessert to enjoy when the weather starts getting colder!
