Oh how do I love this time of year.   As fall approaches a very familiar warm feeling just comes over me. As I’ve been sharing over on my Instagram page, I’m already indulging in all things fall despite our unseasonably warm weather.  It starts with the changing of the leaves, the cooling of the weather and the need for scarves.   Maybe it’s the upcoming holidays or the pumpkins and apples foods that are in abundance…whatever the reason is, I love fall.  I also love that it means that it’s time to make my favorite Apple Crumb Cake!

This dessert is a salute to fall, it’s applelicious and full of spices and oh so good.   It’s a crumb cake that has a secret layer of brown sugared apples hidden beneath the crunchy, cinnamon and brown sugar crumble…oh what a treat!  I was  hesitant to make this apple crumb cake because I knew that I cannot resist anything apple flavored.  So far I’m not doing well, I’ve had a huge chunk of cake for lunch and probably will do so again at dinner time…oh well…I tried.

Did you know that I only make this apple crumb cake between September to November?  It’s true – much to my husband’s dismay because he LOVES this cake!  I told him that it’s seasonal and to ask again in September.  Do you have a seasonal dessert or dish that you only make at certain times of year? I’ve also posted a video for this over on my YouTube Channel where I have a ton of other videos.  Be sure to hop on over and subscribe!

    We still have summer weather here, but my taste buds are turning to cinnamon and apples.
    I have saved this recipe to make in a few weeks when our apples are out.
    –crumb toppings are my fav.
