The perfect apple crumb cake to make this fall!
If you’re following the blog you already know that one of the reasons I love fall so much is the apples. You can find the best apples in all the local farmers market, and if you’re a fan of apples, as I am, you can use apples to make cakes, pastry, desserts, and even baked chips.As the old saying goes an apple a day keeps the doctor away and makes me a very happy baker. I truly believe that apples are one of natures best inventions!
This apple crumb cake is one of my favorites, and it’s almost a staple cake in our house during the fall. It’s really easy to bake, and if you have company coming over this one will be a super impressive and it goes great with a good cup of coffee or apple cider 😉
