Apple Pie Cake

By Heather Wirtz October 18, 2016
This cake is the perfect combination of warm apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. It has the flavors of apple pie and a delicious crumb topping. Enjoy this as a sweet treat for breakfast, a snack or as dessert with some ice cream or whipped cream. We ate it hot straight out of the oven, I think our first loaf lasted about 10 minutes!
