Posted on September 26th, 2013 | Posted in Breakfast and Brunch, Dessert, Recipes

Two flavors that represent autumn to me are apple and pumpkin. This week I present possibly the best Apple Crumb Cake you will ever come across. Every fall for the past two years my friend has made this treat for book club and this year I got my hands on the recipe! It can be enjoyed for dessert, breakfast, or however you see fit, as we welcome in this crisp fall weather!
