This is Fall baking at its finest. Apple flavor aplenty in this moist and simple Applesauce Cake. It makes great use of homemade applesauce and makes for the perfect after school snack.
As many home bakers and cooks do, I like to use the flavors and produce of the season as much as possible. I’m still learning a lot about what some of those are, but for Fall I seem to have that season down pat! Apples are my go-to this season with pumpkin a close second. Applesauce is one of my favorites to make – it’s simple and can be easily tailored to one’s preferences for sweetness, tartness, and spice level. Recently, I made a huge batch of applesauce and jarred most of it, keeping some to bake into this delicious applesauce cake. You gotta give it a try this apple season!

Are you ready for it? Cuz this Double Crumb Crumb Cake will change the way you view this classic cake. The double crumb is as buttery as it can get, sweet and cinnamony and about two-thirds of the cake itself. It doesn’t get any better than that.
Reasons why you’ll love this crumb cake:
- Incredibly versatile – it can be breakfast, dessert, and/or a snack. Pairs well with coffee!
- Ultra buttery. I mean, c’mon, there’s 4 sticks of butter alone in the crumb topping! Granted, that’s split between two cakes, but still – crazy amounts of butter up in here
- It’s easy to make, it keeps well, and can be frozen easily. This is especially helpful because this recipe makes two cakes. One for now, one for later
- This classic cake appeals to generations young and old. Those of the earlier generations love the classic crumb cake flavors and those of the later generations love indulging in this cake for lazy weekend breakfasts, plus no fancy schmancy ingredients or flavors

Figs + goat cheese + honey = amazing flavor combo! Totally got inspired by the gorgeous figs at the farmers market and the honey from my sister’s own backyard for this one.
I love the idea of using unexpected ingredients like goat cheese in a sweet dish. It provides a bit of tanginess to balance out the sweetness of the honey cake and the figs add seasonal flair and loads of beautiful color to this cake. Just take a look at how beautiful and inviting this looks!

Mmmmmmm… cake pops… Delicious, portable, bite-sized treats on a stick
Find me one person who doesn’t like cake pops! I made two batches of cake pops in two different flavors last week and even experimented a bit with the coating, swirling a few colors together for a cool tie-dye effect. I’m not quite there yet on what I was setting out to achieve, but my kids enjoyed swirling the colors together, so I call that mission accomplished!
