Scrumptious Apple Crumb Cake

9 Oct. 2013 Posted by Hannah Mich

It is apple season and we have more apples than we can even begin to eat. So, I searched and searched for some award winning apple recipes. However, with my creative personality in the kitchen, sticking to a recipe just does not work. This apple crumb cake is moist, very tasty and has soft juicy apples in every bite. The original recipe can be found here . BUT this recipe will not disappoint and will likely be a reoccurring baked item in our house since our freezer is jammed packed of apple slices ready for use. Enjoy!

Ingredient List: 

2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour (recommend King Arthur)
1 cup brown rice flour (recommend Red Bob's Mill)
2 tbsp wheat germ
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1. 5 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
3 eggs (cage-free, organic)
3/4 cup whole organic milk (recommend Kalona SuperNatural)
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
1.5-2 cups of peeled diced apples (recommend organic Gala and/or McIntosh)
6 oz plain organic yogurt (recommend Kalona SuperNatural)
1 cup almond flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves


Grease a 13x9 oven safe dish (I recommend glass). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In on medium mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients and set aside. In another medium mixing bowl combine all wet ingredients (oil, eggs, milk, vanilla). Pour half the dry mixture in the wet mixture and stir until barely mixed. In the remainder of the dry mixture toss in the peeled and diced apples until they are coated. Combine this dry mixture with apples into the wet mixture. Stir until mixed (note: the dough will be stiff). Pour mixture and spread evenly into pan.

In a small bowl combine the "topping" ingredients and mix well. Drizzle and/or spread this over the top of the batter in the pan. Put pan in oven and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake (note: if it comes out almost clean, that is fine, too). Set on a cooling rack for 15-20 minutes and serve.
