Autumn Apple Crumb Cake

We just went apple picking. Well, we didn't actually pick any apples because it was so hot and there wasn't anyone else there- we would have had to wait a while to catch the wagon out to the orchard. BUT, we did pick up 2 bushels of fabulous McIntosh and Gala apples. They were a bit on the smaller side, so I put them to use in this cake. enjoy!


1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 large egg, beaten
2 cups chopped apples, I used gala and mcIntosh, skinned and chopped, about 6 apples

streusel topping-
 1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

 The struesel topping-  Preheat the oven to 350°. Combine in a large bowl the streusel ingredients and mix with a fork until crumbs form.

Butter a 9" square casserole dih and set aside. Mix dry ingredietns thoroughly and add beaten egg, apples and yogurt. Mix until just blended, either in a mixer or by hand.  Add cake mixture to dish and smooth out. Top with the streusel and even out. Bake the crumb cake in the center of the oven for about 30 minutes, until risen and golden.  Let the crumb cake cool slightly before serving.
