The mouth-watering flavour trifecta of apple, cinnamon and cardamom bursts in every bite of this apple crumble coffee cake. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, it’s perfect with coffee or tea on a crisp fall day.
Today is the day people. It’s the last day of summer (the first official day of fall is tomorrow at 10:21 AM EST – how precise!). Depending on where you are on the seasons scale, you’re either rejoicing or feeling a little blue.
Me, I’m a little blue. Winters are always tough for me to get through (I mean, winters here hurt my eyeballs) and fall kind of ushers that in for me (gotta love fall fashion though!).
Anyway. So there’s this cake. It doesn’t have frosting. It’s not lemon or chocolate. But dang it’s one of the most delicious I’ve ever made and tasted.
It’s so soft and tender on the inside but has this nice crunch on the outside. And it’s filled with that delicious apple flavour accented with hints of cinnamon and cardamom. Seriously, every bite tastes like fall but feels warm, like a cozy blanket. You gotta try it.
The cake base
I found the base cake recipe from Williams-Sonoma. It was just a simple cake though and I wanted one where it’s all crumbly and meaty on top. So I took that and made it a crumble cake. The result was fantastic.
Apple crumble coffee cake
This apple crumble coffee cake is everything I love about a coffee cake: lovely tender cake, crunchy oat crumble, amazing taste. It goes so well with coffee (thus, the name) and tea (yay for tea lovers like me). Perfect served warm, fresh from the oven but also still pretty wonderful the next day (all it takes is a few seconds in the microwave).
So whether you’re happy fall is here or a little sad summer is over, let’s have cake! Apple crumble coffee cake. I promise it is delicious.
