I LOVE crumble/streusel on top of things!  I mean…  like REALLY love it. This recipe is all about the crumble on top and it’s amazing.

I mean, just look at that crumble….

I also like to top the slices with a drizzle of simple and sweet vanilla glaze (icing sugar, a tiny bit of vanilla, and a tiny bit of soy milk – stir. If too runny add more icing sugar, if too stiff add more soy milk).

I often sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on the top of this cake before I bake it, just to kick up the cinnamon flavour a bit. Totally optional.
Something I haven't tried yet, but I plan to, is to add some finely diced apple to the batter. If you try this, let me know how it goes!
