Loaded Apple Cinnamon Crumb Cake

Nor Mac


Wow! This cake was very well recieved in my home. It is so good. I could just eat the topping as a dessert. It is full of apples inside and on top. It is also a nice tender cake. It is topped off with a cinnamon crunch topping. This is a cake I created from an old plain cake recipe. I changed it up by adding sourcream, applesauce, using less butter, and sifting the flour mixture. I also added in the apples, cinnamon and a crunch topping. That made it into a whole new cake! I am sure you will all enjoy this loaded apple cake! :-)
