➺1 cup butter, room temperature
➺2 cup granulated sugar
➺3 eggs
➺3 cups flour
➺3 teaspoons baking powder
➺¹/₂ teaspoon salt
➺1 tablespoon apple pie spice (or cinnamon)
➺1 teaspoon vanilla

➺Crumb Topping
➺¹/₂ cup butter
➺1 cup brown sugar
➺1 ¹/₂ cups flour
➺¹/₂ teaspoon salt
➺¹/₂ teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 13×9 with parchment paper. Spray with non-stick spray and set aside.

Make the crumb first: In a medium bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, flour, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until all ingredients are every combined- the mixture should resemble coarse sand. Set aside.

Make the cake: In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time until all are incorporated. Stir in vanilla.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and apple pie spice. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in halves, alternating with the buttermilk until all ingredients are mixed. Fold in shredded apples and pour into pan. Top evenly with crumb mixture and bake 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Once fully cool, mix powdered sugar and apple cider together and stir until smooth. Drizzle over the cake and serve.
