Apple Cinnamon Crumb Cake

IMG_2222I cannot believe it is almost November.  These past few months have flown by and I am having a hard time keeping up.  The weather is finally cooling down here in Texas so I am getting excited and feeling the holiday spirit.   We have been in full remodel mode over at my house and so I am trying to keep things as normal as possible and breakfast and snacks are our gathering time.  Before everyone runs out the door for school and when the kids get home and we can all sit and chat before the rest of the day takes over.  This busy season, cool weather and hungry kids calls for this scrumptious Apple Cinnamon Crumb Cake.  We are a big banana bread family, but I knew we needed to change things up and this is pulling through as a favorite!  

Weather you just grabbed extra apples at the grocery store or you have ventured out to an apple orchard and have a lot of apples to work with, this recipe is sure to win some points with your family. Enjoy!

Nanny’s Sour Cream Coffee Crumb Cake

sour cream coffee cake 1As I sit here and share this recipe with you, I want you to know how special this one is.  If you know or don’t know, “Ink” stands for In Nanny’s Kitchen and my nanny was the wonderful baker in our family.  I have a full book loaded with recipes, some that I have made and many that I have not gotten to yet, but will very soon!  This coffee crumb cake recipe is not just any crumb cake, it is full of wonderful memories for my mom and my aunts that were raised eating this weekly.  As I comb through the pages of my Nanny’s recipe book, I watched my mom and my aunt laugh at all the fun they had and great memories of their mom baking.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I have!!!

With so many options for breakfast, the key to my success is easy and satisfying for the whole family. Sour Cream Coffee Cake is an old family classic, baked straight from my “Nanny’s” kitchen. This recipe has a rich buttery flavor, filled with a cinnamon sugar swirl and will pair well with a soothing cup of tea or coffee to give your day a boost.
