This week was a very tight budget week yet I wanted a dessert so after surfing the net I came across a recipe from Neigborhoodfood blog… for this awesome crumb cake that sound just like what I wanted….However I was short on ingredients meaning I had to do lots of substitution to create this crumb cake but that is what baking is all about use what you got and get creative…But first I want to tell you about the cake I love this quick cake as well as my picky DD and will be making it again in the future using the changes that I made. I am thinking I could cut the recipe in half (8 x 8) so we can use the toaster oven vs the big oven during the hot Arizona summers… So I see testing this out pretty soon is in order…
So here is the recipe and my changes.
For the crumb layers:
3 cups flour->used 1 cup of wheat->1 cup of white->1 cup of ground oatmeal
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar-skipped
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg->skipped
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted –>1 cup of coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large (or 3 small) tart peeled and chopped –>3 gala apples
For the cake:
8 Tablespoons butter->Brummer and Brown Yogurt Butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sour cream-> Dannon Plain Yogurt
2 cups flour- mixture of whole wheat/white/oatmeal
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Baked for 1 hour vs 40 mins and I didn’t need to cover it…
Here are some pictures I took of the cake making….I missed a few shots but you get the idea…
Started off slicing my apples to find that my apples had started to sprout their seeds and I just knew I needed a picture of that…..Pretty wild huh?…
This is the batter mix it does get very thick
Crumb Mix looks yummy too me! with all the sugar!!
This is a shot of the batter on the bottom then the apples and then the first layer of those crumbs
Everyone needs a close up of those apples and crumbs
This the last batter layer before I top it with that last of those crumbs had to use a spatula to spread it out it was so thick and rich!!!
One Apple Crumb Cake ready to cool and eat!!!!
