Apple Crumble Cake

A classic dessert in Cake form

Apple crumble is a traditional dessert in the UK, often a family favourite in many households. It’s made by stewing apples with sugar and a little bit of water, then a mixture of plain flour and butter is made into crumble (usually resembling breadcrumbs) and placed on top of the stewed apple and baked. Some even choose to put oats in with the crumble topping for added texture.

Sponge’s Apple Crumble Cake

We love apple crumble as a dessert and so we created our very own apple crumble cake recipe, inspired by this glorious treat. It’s made with real apple pieces, juicy sultanas, cinnamon, and free-range eggs which make a wonderfully light and tasty sponge. Real butter and natural vanilla flavouring create a luscious buttercream with crumble on top.

This gorgeous looking and tasting cake is also available as gluten-free. It looks and tastes as good as our standard cake; the only difference is that it’s made with gluten-free flour and suitable for those with gluten intolerance.

Other fruity Cakes

If you love the idea of a fruit crumble cake, then you’ll probably enjoy one of our other fruit-based cakes.

Our carrot cakes also include juicy sultanas, it is a popular classic cake flavour that’s been enjoyed by many of our customers in the past. Grated carrot, cinnamon, walnuts, plump sultanas, free-range eggs, and a hint of nutmeg make up this rich and juicy sponge. Naturally flavoured vanilla buttercream with crunch walnut pieces on top.

Why not try our gluten-free and dairy-free Elizabeth Sponge Cake? This is an exceptionally fruity delight - Juicy sultanas, free-range eggs, lemon juice, gluten-free flour mix, and ground almonds create this fruity sponge. Quality apricot jam binds the sponge together and demerara sugar is dusted on top for added crunch.

Not only are these cakes scrummy, but they also make excellent birthday cakes. If you or someone you know loves apple crumble, then why not get a birthday cake that’s a little bit different this year.
