Organic Apple Spice Crumb Cake Recipe 1

The cool crisp air of fall gets me super excited to bake! I am all about the apple, pumpkin, and maple desserts this time of year. Baking is one of them pastimes that helps me to destress when things get tense. Oddly enough, when I feel overwhelmed, heading into my kitchen relaxes me. Recipes like this Organic Apple Crumb Cake made with Mayonnaise are exactly the kind of Fall baked goods my family enjoys.

Ever since I made that Chocolate Frosted Cake made of mayo this past summer, I have been adding mayo to my cake batters. But, it is not just any mayonnaise. My family only love Hellmann’s mayo because of the creamy, quality taste. Yes, I have created 4 mayo snobs who can spot cheap mayonnaise a mile away!

While admittedly, we typically use traditional Hellmann’s Mayonnaise, we have been trying to clean things up a bit in our diet (when we can) so we recently tried Hellmann’s Organic Mayonnaise from Whole Foods.

Hellmann’s Organic Mayonnaise is currently available in a 15-ounce size jar. You can find it at stores like Whole Foods which we are lucky enough to live by! Actually, we have two local Whole Foods stores in Rhode Island–total score! I LOVE everything about Whole Foods and could shop there daily! They have the best-prepared foods, and a variety of clean, wholesome, and healthy foods, and products. It is truly no wonder why the parking lot & store are always full!

While shopping at Whole Foods, I not only picked up the Hellmann’s Organic Mayonnaise, but I also some organic eggs, apples, flour, and a few other baking staples to replenish my baking pantry.

I have been known to go through a bag of flour a week during the baking season and lots of eggs so having wholesome, clean options on hand is a must!

So, what makes USDA Organic Certified Hellmann’s Organic Mayonnaise super special? Well, besides being made with the finest ingredients, is contains expeller-free pressed oil, organic cage-free eggs, no artificial preservatives, or flavors, and is gluten-free.

You can use this organic mayonnaise in any recipe that regular mayo is called for. It is especially perfect in this Organic Apple Crumb Cake and creates a delicious, moist cake.

I love the fluffy cake body and the deliciously delectable crumb topping.

This apple crumb cake goes so perfectly with hot coffee, tea, or some ice-cold milk.

Questions you might have while baking this cake

What size pan is best for making apple crumble?

A 13 x 9 baking pan is best for this recipe. You can opt to use a ceramic baking dish or metal one. You will notice this cake will rise generously, but not spill over the pan.

Do I need to grease my pan?

Yes, for this recipe a greased pan works best. This will ensure your cake can be smoothly lifted from the pan after cutting into it. I do recommend using a plastic knife and rubber spatula to remove each slice to prevent your pan from being scratched.

Does organic mayonnaise taste different than regular?

Hellmann’s Organic still has the classic flavor you have come to love from the original, but is made with cleaner ingredients that you can feel even better enjoying.

Can this apple crumb cake be frozen?

In the mood to bake multiple apple crumb cakes? The good news is you can freeze this entire cake or small portions of it. Just be sure to use either a vacuum sealer or airtight freezer bags. Make sure the cake is completely cooled before freezing. To enjoy at a later date, simply thaw and eat. You can also briefly warm the thawed cake in the microwave for 30-45 seconds to heat it up.

Why use mayonnaise in a cake recipe?

Mayonnaise will help your cake to retain moisture. Simply put, it is made of oil, and eggs so it really is not that odd as a baking ingredient.

    I’d love to try but I can’t afford to buy organic because it’s too pricey where I live.

      Yes, organic is often pricey. Use non-organic.

      @Brenda Harry, using organics is not snobbery, we each make our own choices.

    I've been putting mayo [1T] in cake mixes for years

      Thank you, it’s just so expensive buying any organic products. I’m going to try to make it without all the organic products. 😊
