Apple Crumble Snack'n Cake

Most of us enjoy something sweet every now and then, but the problem with desserts is that unless you're a very well organized person, getting all that flour and butter and yadda yadda yadda pulled out of the cupboards takes all kinds of energy that, most days, I don't have.

This is why I've grown so fond of the "Snack'n Cake;" and my many original variations on the concept - like today's uber moist, ultra flavourful crumbly, apple cinnamon slab of amazingness - is like Nirvana on a plate.

Don't believe me?

*Ahem*
















Can I get a moment of silence?

In the meantime, I have been so kind as to out together a printable recipe

And an easy to follow step by step recipe video. I hope you enjoy!




Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pure unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil 
  • 1/3 cup sour cream  
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 cups chopped apples
Crumble Topping
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Directions
  1. Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, add apple juice, sour cream, vegetable oil, vinegar, and stir. 
  3. Add the dry mix to the wet, stir until everything is incorporated, and then add the apple.
  4. Mix all of the crumble topping ingredients together until well incorporated and then sprinkle evenly over the entire top of the cake.
  5. Pour into a square 8x8x2 cake pan that has been prepared with parchment paper for easy removal, cover with the crumble mixture, and bake in a preheated 350 oven for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Let rest at least ten minutes before removing from the cake pan. Let cool before slicing.
