This apple-cranberry crumb cake is a moist and delicious cake topped with sweet apples, cranberries, and a cinnamon-sugar topping. Makes a delicious breakfast, afternoon treat, or impressive dessert! It’s also vegan friendly with gluten and refined sugar free options.
Of all the desserts, anything cake-y or bread-y usually get my attention first, while my hubby prefers fruity desserts, like pies or crisps. This cake is the best of both worlds—fluffy vanilla cake + apple crisp…the perfect marriage!
I like to toss a handful of cranberries into my apple desserts because it adds just a bit of tart to contrast the sweet. The batter is a moist vanilla cake, which is naturally sweetened with honey and/or maple syrup, which is then topped with thinly sliced apples and a cinnamon + sugar + pecan crumble—yep, it tastes as good as it sounds!
This cake would be perfect with your morning coffee, as an afternoon treat, or an evening dessert. Its rustic beauty is sure to impress your family and friends too! Enjoy!
