Moist, flavorful cake full of apple chunks topped with a thick layer of buttery crumb topping.  The perfect breakfast or brunch treat!

Every time I think I can predict the ebbs and flows of my new business I’m absolutely wrong.  But you know what, I’ve never been so happy to be wrong.

I really thought that as soon as I got all of my Mother’s Day orders out early this week, things would slow down and I’d get a little break to catch up on emails, blogging, and everything else like the giant pile of clean laundry on my living room chair.  Doing laundry I don’t mind, putting it away is a different story.

So despite my expectations, this week turned into a crazy get-as-much-as-possible-done-until-you-can’t-stand-up-anymore kind of week.  Unexpected last minute Mother’s Day orders came in, I catered the desserts for a MomTrends event (more on that in another post) and a few exciting orders- several as gifts for Emmy nominees and one for a TV show cast and crew.  I’ll be delivering to the TV show in person so that should be fun!

Oh, and did I mention I am hosting Mother’s Day brunch?  Luckily brunch is one of the easiest meals to prepare for.  We are starting with the basics of bagels, lox, etc. and then a few additions like frittata (easy), fruit (also easy), and whatever last minute desserts I can’t help but make.  Brunch really is one of my favorite meals (when eaten at lunch time of course, who can wait for a late breakfast?) because bagels are one of the best foods on the planet, but the highlight for this meal might just be this amazing apple crumb cake.  I made it last weekend and Matt and I each enjoyed a giant piece before I froze the rest for Sunday (guess I had a feeling the week could get crazy).

This cake is the perfect balance of a thick layer of buttery crumb topping over a moist and flavorful cake batter.  Initially I planned to make a blueberry version, but the price of blueberries was insane so I went with apple instead.  Apples might not really be in season anymore, but Granny Smith apples are pretty dependable all year long.   I can not wait to serve this at brunch, and will definitely be making it again!  Head over to Fox for the recipe.
