Apple Crumble Cake

You will love this beautiful take on a classic apple crumble: a light sponge studded with sweet-tart Granny Smith apples topped with a cinnamon and brown sugar-coated mixture of crunchy almonds, coconut and oats. Easy to prepare using a few all-natural, simple ingredients and delicious to enjoy with fresh cream or vanilla ice cream. And of course, a glass of Zeffer’s Apple Crumble Infused Cider pairs perfectly too.
