I spent some time working in America and one of the stand-out cakes for me was a Coffee Crumble Cake. The name suggests it is coffee in flavour however it is meant to be eaten with coffee or in our case a cup of tea!

Ingredients: For the crumble

200g granulated sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 table spoon cinnamon
150g plain flour
60g unsalted butter melted

Mix all of the dry together and then add the butter mix until combined and set aside.

Use a table knife to swirl the two mixtures together

Line a 10” tin with parchment and pre-heat your oven to 180˚C/gas4.

Cream the sugars, salt with the butter and baking powder. Then beat the eggs and slowly add them to the mix.

Combine the sour cream and milk and then beat in the flour and dairy alternatively.

Put 1/3 of the batter into the tin and sprinkle 1/2 of the filling on top. Repeat until you finish with the batter.

Now use a table knife to swirl the two mixtures together.

Place the crumble on top and bake in the oven for approximately 1 ½ – 2 hours.

Checking the cake with a skewer to make sure that it comes out clean, leave the cake in the tin to cool before lifting out and serve with apple puree and ice cream, delicious!
