Apple Crumb Cake

apple-crumb-cake-8 

This Apple Crumb Cake is so easy and so divine.  A lot of apple cakes get soggy after the first day but this one holds up quite well.  Of course good luck keeping it around that long.  The crumb topping is so scrumptious that you will be picking up what falls off in the pan and scooping it up in your mouth!!

apple-crumb-cake-6This wonderful recipe comes together quickly.  You can use any kind of good cooking apples.  I used two Granny Smith’s, two Pink Ladies and one honey crisp…and a partridge in a pear tree.  It is apple picking time here in the Midwest.  Perfect time of the year. Did you know these interesting facts about apples?

Apple trees take four to five years to produce their first fruit.

Most apples are still picked by hand in the fall.

Apple varieties range in size from a little larger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit.

2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States.

Apples are grown commercially in 36 states.

Apples are grown in all 50 states.

Apples are a member of the rose family.

I love apples.  I could go for a honey crisp right now considering my family devoured this cake in no time flat.  I hope you and your loved ones enjoy this Apple Crumb Cake as much as we do!!
