Apple Crumble Cake recipe is simple which needs basic ingredients that you will have on hand, and it's perfect for breakfast, lunchbox, or dessert. I often bake crumb cake and just wish there was less cake in it and more of the crumb topping. This Ultra soft apple crumb cake is loaded with warm cinnamon apples and extra crumb topping. If you are just like me want more n more crumb topping then you will love this cake! The best crumb cake in the world!

This Apple Crumb cake is moist, deliciously spiced, layered and topped with a delicious crunchy crumble which is perfect for serving at house party or any occasions. Just serve it warm with a scoop of ice-cream and your delicious dessert is ready to serve.

It took me several tries to get this apple crumb cake just the way I wanted. Before arranging the dice apple over the batter, I toss them gently in brown sugar and cinnamon. It helps them cook perfectly between the layers of the cake and the topping. Next, above the diced apple sprinkle lots of crumb topping on top and bake! You can also have it at room temperature for a simple afternoon tea.
