To make the cake:

To begin, preheat the oven to 180C. Grease your baking tray with butter or a non-stick cooking spray.

Next, take your medium mixing bow and combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and allspice and then set it aside.

In the large mixing bowl, combine all the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, Greek yoghurt, vegetable oil, eggs, apple cider and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

Add the dry ingredients from the medium mixing bowl to the large mixing bowl and stir well, Gently fold in the chopped-up apples once all the ingredients are incorporated.

Transfer all of the cake batter into your baking tray.

To make the crumb topping:

Place the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt, and butter into a mixing bowl and fork to work the mixture together until the butter chunks have gotten smaller and are more incorporated. Once the butter is pea-sized, use your hands to work the mixture.

According to Valerie, the mixture may seem dry at first but your hands will soon soften the butter and you work it. She wrote: “When the mixture begins to hold together when you squeeze a handful, it is ready.”

Sprinkle your crumb topping over your cake and your cake is ready to bake. Place in the oven for around 35 to 45 minutes, or until the crumb topping appears a light golden brown.

Use a toothpick and insert it into the middle of the cake to check if is ready, and if it comes out clean, your cake is ready to take out the oven. If it comes out wet with cake batter, your cake needs a few more minutes.

To make the apple cider glaze:

Combine the sugar and apple cider and add more cider if needed until you have a thick glaze. Once your cake is done, take it out the oven and leave to cool down.

When the cake is cool, pour the glaze over the crumble. Your delicious and apple cider coffee cake is now ready to serve.
