BLESS THIS MESS
This easy Apple Crumb Cake recipe is a sweet, crumbly, and delicious fruit dessert that you can make on a cool Fall day to use up the rest of those apples lying around!
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F., and butter the bottom and sides of a jelly roll pan
Add the butter, applesauce, and sugar to the bowl of your stand mixer. Mix with the paddle attachment on medium speed, until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Add the eggs, and beat until well mixed. Add the flour to the bowl, and then sprinkle the baking powder and cinnamon over the top. Mix together on low speed until combined. Fold in the apples. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
Combine the sugars, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together to combine. Add the melted butter and stir. Add the flour, and stir to make a dough that resembles the consistency of cookie dough.
Take the "dough" in your hands, break off pea-sized crumbs, and drop them on top of the cake batter. Place the cake in the oven and bake for 23 to 26 minutes, until the cake springs back when slightly touched.
Allow the cake to cool for several hours before serving. Store by lightly covering with a towel, too tight of a covering makes the crumb topping go soft.
