Every Sunday we have a house full of our kids for dinner. I love it because it gives me a chance to talk to my adult kids at least once a week. I love the relationship they have with each other and I could seriously sit there silently and just listen to them talk.
Last night, we had a group text that just wouldn’t die because they were having so much fun. What is Sunday dinner without dessert? It’s a great time for me to try out new recipes and feed my cute family! A few weeks ago, I decided to make a cinnamon apple crumb cake since it’s getting close to Fall.
I have always loved crumb cakes and I haven’t ever made one for the blog. This is an easy recipe that everyone will have success with and love! It’s a crumbly cake but doesn’t let that fool you, it’s so moist!
