This Apple Crumble Cake is Perfection

Apple Crumble is one of my favourite winter desserts. But what if it could also be a cake?

This cake has a wonderful pudding like texture, as well as gorgeous chunks of apple. The rum  provides a lovely flavour to this moist, light cake. And the crumble topping? It just finishes the whole cake off nicely. You could also add some walnuts or flaked almonds to the crumble mixture before you sprinkle it over the cake mixture, but I didn’t have any in the cupboard at the time – they would make a great textural addition.

Hello!

Welcome!

My name is Janelle, and I’m a wife, mum to 2 little boys and in a former life I used to be a chef. I find comfort and peace in cooking, and just love the feeling of providing for my family and friends.

It’s not always a world of solace in my kitchen – having a 2yr old who wants to ‘help’ and a 5 month old in a high chair next to the bench, sometimes makes for an interesting outcome. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

In my blog you’ll find recipes for tried and tested sweet stuff, as well as a few tempting savoury bites. I have a definite sweet tooth, as you’ll find out.

Quite a lot of this will also be kid friendly, and also able to be prepared and cooked during my children’s sleep times! Any mum will know that you use these precious times to not only have a hot cuppa, but to get stuff done without having little hands everywhere.

So have a look around, and don’t be shy to let me know what you think… Comment away or send me some feedback!
