I don’t think there is anything more satisfying than a warm apple dessert with vanilla ice cream. This cake is absolutely, hands down, one of my top favorite desserts. The cake layer is moist and flavorful, the apples get soft and gooey keeping a slight crunch, and the crumb topping is sweet with a hint of cinnamon. It’s like an apple pie meets a crumb cake. Seriously, perfect. The one thing that makes this dessert absolutely over the top is the brown sugar glaze. Oh my god, people. It almost tastes like a caramel but even better! Plus, it only takes about 5 seconds to whip it up.
I had asked my step father if he had any dessert requests for his birthday on Sunday, and his answer was an apple crumb cake. So, I went to searching online and found this recipe but tweaked it a little bit to be a bit more me. The result? SUCCESS! Topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and the delicious glaze poured over it, everyone loved it. Everybody kept ranting and raving about it! Lots of, “Mmmm’s” and “Omg’s” because it really is just sooo good.
While baking, you can enjoy the lovely aromas of cinnamon and apple baking. Pure. heaven.
This apple crumb coffee cake is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
