Delicious Autumn recipe using apples and the lovely flavours of cinnamon with a decadent crunch topping.
This recipe includes ingredients gifted by Countdown Supermarkets as brand ambassador. All opinions are my own.
This recipe is based on my Feijoa Crunch Cake and is so easy to make! Perfect for the abundance of apples our much neglected tree gives us each year.
Any apples can be used in this recipe, I have no idea what variety ours are but while many prefer to use granny smith, I find it is ok to use whatever you have on hand!

The recipe is in two parts, the batter for the cake and the crunch topping. You can of course omit the topping but it really does elevate the cake! You could also use a simple vanilla glaze if you prefer.
You will note from the ingredients above that this recipe calls for buttermilk. It is not an ingredient I often have on hand, but I can make it from just a few simple ingredients, milk and either white vinegar or lemon juice.
Buttermilk can be made by using the above ingredients to “sour” the milk. This makes the resulting cake lovely and soft, light and moist. The ratio for this is 1 cup of milk to 1 tablespoon of either white vinegar or lemon juice.
To make the cake itself, it is a one bowl cake, simply adding the ingredients in the order below and combining at each step. The cake takes around an hour to bake so allow time for that.
The topping is simply a combination of white sugar, cinnamon and cold butter, rubbed together then sprinkled over the cake before baking. This creates a delicious crunchy finish to the cake as it bakes.
This is a lovely cake served warm or cold, as an afternoon tea or as a dessert with a lovely vanilla yoghurt. I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do.

Absolutely delicious, super easy & one pot…the trifecta😁 🙌 I made this Apple Crunch Cake today, it was out of the over 30 minutes & my husband was in his second slice! Thank you Anna, another perfect recipe 👌🏻
That is such lovely feedback Liz, thank you.
It was delicious. I would add maybe a teaspoon of salt to the recipe. We had it with ice cream.
