~ Apple Awesome Crumb Cake ~

This recipe comes from my favorite aunt.She's the one who taught me how to make pie crusts and pies. I always enjoyed spending time at her house as a kid as she was always cooking and baking. She can make anything and make it look so easy.
So deliciously moist.

I hope you enjoy her cake. It's great with your morning coffee or tea! :)
