Some desserts just taste like home, and this Cinnamon Apple Crumb Cake is one of them. There’s something comforting (and completely delicious) about its sweet apple flavor and pillowy soft texture. Plus, this recipe has plenty of crumbly streusel topping, which everyone knows is the best part of an apple crumb cake. Whether this recipe reminds you of something your mom used to make, or you want to start a new food tradition in your own home, this cinnamon crumb cake recipe is a perfect dessert to make.

From the Chef: The apples in this dish remind me of the texture of apple pie: soft, warm, and full of cinnamon-y goodness. The brown butter glaze on top seals in all of the sweet flavors.
