Apples Again, A Compromise Cake – Apple Crumble Cake

IMG_3633

So, a compromise cake? Mr Muffin loves his apple crumble and work loves my baking. We needed a bit of a lift at work so I promised some baking. Doing a crumble and a cake was great idea and it worked. This cake is not overly sweet, if you have a sweet tooth tip something on it or have a side of ice-cream . Carmel sauce would work well.

Our apples in New Zealand are outstanding at the moment. They are just so good. We had two bags in the fridge and so I did a mix of Braeburn and Granny Smith. This gives a bit of sweetness and a tang from the Grannies. We enjoyed this cake just after it was made but I thought it was better the next day.
