How to make The Best Apple Crumb Cake?

Step 1: Ready an 8-inch round springform pan. Grease and flour, then set aside.

Step 2: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.

Step 3: To make the topping, combine the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and flour in a medium bowl. Then, add the melted butter. Using a fork, fluff the mixture to create crumbs. Set aside.


Step 4: Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well until combined.

Step 5: Add the milk in a large measuring cup along with the vanilla, oil, and egg. Mix well until smooth.

Step 6: To the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients. Mix using a wooden spoon until just combined. A couple of lumps in the batter are fine. Make sure not to over mix.

Step 7: Into the prepared pan, pour the cake batter.

Step 8: Place the apple slices in a medium bowl with 2 tbsp sugar, half tsp cinnamon, and apple cider vinegar. Toss well to coat the apple slices.

Step 9: Over the batter, arrange the slices of apples and top with crumb topping, making sure to completely cover the apple slices.

Step 10: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. Remove from the oven when done and allow the cake to cool completely in the pan.

Step 11: Once cooled, invert the cake onto a serving plate or stand. Slice the cake and serve. Or store in a covered container for up to 4 days.
