Nothing beats the smell of a  freshly baked cake in the morning. But your kitchen will be  smellin' devinely good til noon after baking this cake. Who hates the smell of apples and cinnamon anyway? The added bunos is, it tasted great too.



Cream  200 g butter ( at room temperature) and 175 g sugar together until thick and pale.
Next.Beat in four eggs. One after the other.Beat in 1 tsp. vanilla  until everything is well combined.


 Whisk together 375 g of flour, 1 tbsp. of baking powder and a pinch of salt.Sieve in half of the flour mixture into the egg and butter mixture.Using a spatula, carefully fold everything together adding few drops of milk if batter is too dry.Do not use electric mixer at this point. It would make the cake hard after baking.


Fold in the rest of flour and few drops of milk if necessary.Spread  cake batter in a well buttered rectangular baking pan. Pour apple sauce ( about 400 g) over the cake batter spreading evenly.

Peel two sour apples, cube it finely. Add 50 g of white sugar and a tsp of powedered cinnamon. Mix everything thoroughly. Scatter cinnamon apples over the cake, spreading evenly. In another mixing bowl, make curmble topping. Mix 200 g of butter ( chilled and cut into cubes ), 150 g white sugar , 50 g brown sugar , 250 g all purpose flour and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Using a pastry cutter or food processor, work everything together until the mass resembles a moist crumbly sand. Spread crumble  over chopped apples. Bake in a preheated over (180°c)  for about 50 mins or until cake is set and crumble toppings turn golden brown.
