As always, all opinions are my own.

On a crisp fall day is there anything better than a slice of sweet crumb cake studded with delicious apples and a steaming hot cup of coffee? I don’t think so.

A crumb cake can be delicious on it’s own, but it’s only made better when you use a great apple. For this recipe, I used Envy Apples. I’ve worked with them in the past and they are so great. Not only did they provide me with a ton of perfectly ripe apples, but they take such care in their packaging to ensure that the product arrives to you in flawless condition. Envy says:

It’s hard to put into words what makes Envy™ so remarkable. Each satisfyingly sweet crunch redefines what to expect from an apple. Since it was introduced, Envy™ has emerged as the apple with everything: beautiful skin, sweet flavor and a bright, tender flesh that remains white even after being cut. It’s a pure and pristine apple that’s a genuine work of orchard-growing genius.

Envy™ was born in New Zealand using natural plant-breeding methods, crossing a Braeburn with a Royal Gala apple. From there, a handpicked team of talented growers, planted trees in regions perfect for growing Envy, such as New Zealand, Washington state and Chile where they benefit from long,sun-drenched days and crisp, cool evenings. Enjoy Envy™ just about anywhere—it’s nature’s passport to a magical moment of indulgent time. For more information visit

They said it so well, that really, I’ll just let those statements speak for themselves. Make sure that you look for Envy apples in your local supermarket. Once you try an Envy apple, you’ll never want another apple again. Just sayin!

  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until lightly golden and set in the middle. Allow to cool for 20 minutes before releasing the springform pan.
  8. Prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar and milk until it reaches your desired consistency for drizzling, then drizzle over the cooled cake.
  9. Slice and serve.


Apple Pie Spice can be made using 4 tbsp cinnamon, 1 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp allspice, 1 tsp ginger and 1 1/2 tsp cardamom. The remainder of the mixture can be stored in your pantry for 6 months to 1 year.
