Maple Apple Crumble Cake

I woke up this fine morning with a craving....

For something warm, maple-y, cinnamon-y, and tasty.

And decided to be a mad scientist in the kitchen today. Here are my notes:

And here is the result:

I know, that picture is kind of blurry, but hey! I was excited, so cut me some slack! 

Make sure that when you make this recipe, you use some authentic maple syrup - not any of that  "Homestyle Syrup" nonsense... no offense.

I also reccomend that you use this apple sauce, because it truly adds to the flavor of this cake. If you don't use this apple sauce, I recommend that you cut down to 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of 3/4 cup.

Lastly, don't be worried about the huge amount of cinnamon - I assure you, it will only add to the delicious flavor of this cake.

Well, without further ado, here is the recipe for the delicious Maple Apple Crumble Cake!

Maple Apple Crumble Cake
Dry Ingredients
* 1 1/2 cup almond flour
* 1/2 cup rice flour
* 2 Tbsp. oat flour
* 3-4 Tbsp. coconut palm sugar
* 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
* 2 pinches ground allspice
*1/2 tsp. salt
Wet Ingredients
* 3/4 cup Trader Joes' chunky applesauce
* 1/4 cup maple syrup
* 1 minced green apple (just use a food processor)
* 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
* 2 tsp. alcohol free vanilla extract
Crumble Topping
* Oat flour (I used about 1/4 cup)
* Coconut sugar (as much as you want)
* Cinnamon (just for taste)
* Coconut Oil (not melted) - about 1 1/2 Tbsp.
* Maple Syrup (just a drizzle)
* Sea salt !!! (important)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease a regular-sized, round cake pan.
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients together with a wire whisk. Set aside.
3. In a small mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients together.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined. Cake batter should be thick, thick, thick! 
5. Spoon cake mixture into pan, and spread evenly throughout. 
6. For crumble topping, combine dry ingredients with coconut oil, and then add a hint of maple syrup. Form into large crumbs with your hands, and then crumble the crumbs all over your coffee cake. 
7. Stick in the oven for about 28 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. 
8. Remove from oven and let cool for as long as you can manage. Garnish with sea salt.
9. Serve with your favorite coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. ;)

I hope you guys enjoy this crumble cake as much as my parents and I did! 

Much love,
