Apple Cinnamon Cake

If you have a couple of extra apples laying around, I insist you make this cake.  It is sweet and moist and great for a dessert or breakfast!  

Think of it like a coffee cake (although this is not dry AT ALL) and then you won't feel so guilty about eating cake for breakfast.  It is just heavenly with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee! 

Serves 8

Apple Cinnamon Cake

1 stick of butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups, peeled, diced apples (about 2 apples)
1 tablespoon cinnamon

For the topping 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter, diced

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  In a bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together.  In a small bowl, combine the milk and vinegar and add baking soda to dissolve.  Add to butter/sugar mixture and mix well.  Add eggs and mix well.  Add salt, flour and vanilla.  Fold in apples and cinnamon.  

Pour batter in a greased round cake pan.  In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the topping and start mashing with a fork until it becomes crumbly.  Sprinkle topping over batter.  

Bake for 40-45 minutes.
