That’s a mouthful of a title. – Apple Cinnamon Walnut Crumb Cake (say that 3 times fast)
Today little recipe is apple-y, crumby, cinnamon-y and DELICIOUS!
Crumb cakes are lovely cakes but are not the prettiest cakes in the pack. You put nearly all of your ingredient in a bowl and beat. Put half of the mixture into the cake tin and add the grated apple on top. Spoon the rest of the mixture on, level out and sprinkle with sugar, more cinnamon, and walnuts and bake. Couldn’t really be simpler…
This cake is the kind of cake that you would find in cute coffee shops and in tasteful tearooms, serve with proper clotted cream (which clotted your blood!), Créme Frâiche or natural yogurt. Even though it is the middle of summer, Dad wanted something warm and comforting and this cake was the answer. Warm, moist, crumby and apple-y, so good!
The cake is topped with a sort of streusel-like topping make with sugar, walnuts, cinnamon, and apple. When it bakes up, it gets so crispy and moreish, you will probably be picking it off the cake!
By the way, this is a small cake but a deep cake too. The cake tin is only 6 inches but the cake is nearly 2 inches deep, wow. And sorry if you are watching your weight because this cake has butter, and quite a bit of it too. 110g of butter for a cake that serves six…..hmm……Just remember, a little bit of what you want does you good, right? Just eat the cake in moderation and you’ll be fine. And plus, if you make a small cake, you savour the taste a bit more because the cake is smaller and there isn’t as much as a gigantic cake. Big things come in small packages like this cake…….and me!
Feel free to double the recipe but bake in a 9-inch deep cake tin.
