Hello September aka Hello Fall!!

Hello apples, caramel and everything that makes the planet orbit the sun!! (Yup, I mean boots, scarves and crispy leaves).

This caramel apple crumb cake starts with a cinnamon crumb cake that is light, and is filled with chopped apples and swirls of cinnamon and caramel.

To kick off the celebration of apples (and Fall!), I made this easy caramel apple crumb cake. It only makes sense we start with breakfast because you know it’s the most important meal, right?? This cinnamon crumb cake is light, moist, filled with chopped apples and swirls of cinnamon and caramel. I can’t see why your morning cup of joe (or tea) shouldn’t be adorned with a slice of this crumb cake.
