  • These apple crumble cake slices are the perfect way to enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon cup of tea.

    Traditional cinnamon and apple flavours are combined with soft sponge and topped with a crumble crumble in this delicious twist on an apple crumble recipe. In all other ways apart from shape, it’s much like a traditional apple crumble. It has the buttery, sugary, crunchy topping when you first bite into the slice, followed by the soft apples at the bottom. We’ve used cinnamon to give it that warming kick, too. However, these are sliced up into pieces so whether you’re looking for an afternoon snack or late-night treat, they’ll be the perfect thing.

    • In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating between each addition.

    • Add the milk and vanilla and mix, then add the flour and mix until just combined and pour into the tin.

    • Peel, core and quarter the apples, and dice to about 3 mm cubes and lay the cubes over the top of the cake.

    • Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

    • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool fully.
