Apple Pound Cake with Crumble

Helo my dear food lovers!

Let’s go back to something sweet today and enjoy a delicious apple pound cake with crumble. This cake is the perfect answer to the cold weather we have and it will definitely change form your usual recipes.

But first things first, let’s give to Ceasar what is Ceasar’s…

I found my inspiration on the amazing food blog Maryse & Cocotte. Please click and have a look at it! First of all, it’s beautiful, elegant, and there are so many recipes inspired by the French food, the Moroccan food, bread recipes, all perfectly well mixed up!! A true delight!

This pound cake, whithout butter in the batter (which might be interesting for some of you), is absolutely yummy for your breakfast or your afternoon snack. The crunchy crumble and its unique cinnamon taste makes it really special.

I decided to combine this cake with apples. Apple and cinnamon crumble is definitely the best combo ever made in Alsace!! But you could also try it with pear, raspberry or blueberry. I can even picture myself trying it with apricots next summer!! To be continued then… 😉

There is no chocolate in this recipe, and you know how much it is one of my favorite ingredients!! And yet, my kids loved my apple pound cake with crumble, they were even asking for more!! The parents enjoyed it too!!

Let’s go to the kitchen! The recipe, Chef!

    Ce gâteau est excellent ! C’est la première fois que je réalise un cake avec streusel et ça apporte vraiment un plus en saveurs et en croustillant. Le cake est très moelleux, léger et pas trop sucré.
    Tout le monde a aimé quand je l’ai servi ce week-end : un grand merci pour cette recette !
