Apple Olive Oil Crumb Cake

Recipe Blog Post



1 package vanilla box cake mixture

1 cup (8 oz) sour cream

4 eggs

¼ cup sugar

1 cup O&V Single Estate Oil plus 1 teaspoon to grease the pan *

1 tablespoon O&V Melipone Vanilla

1 large green apple, diced small

1 teaspoon flour

Crumb Mixture

¼ cup butter at room temperature

½ cup light brown sugar

¼ cup flour

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Maple Icing (optional)

1 ½ cups confectioner’s sugar

2 tablespoons O&V Runamok Maple Syrup

1-2 tablespoons whole milk





Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan with a little EVOO. Mix the diced apple with the teaspoon of flour


Mix the sour cream, eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla in a bowl. Add the box cake mix and combine well. Fold in the apple mixture. Pour into the prepared pan.


For the crumb mixture, in a small bowl mix together the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Work in the butter with a fork or fingers to create a coarse crumb. Cover the cake with this mixture


Bake for 40 – 45 minutes.


Serve the cake topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or drizzle with Maple Icing


Icing: Whisk together the sugar, syrup and one tablespoon of milk. Add the second tablespoon of milk as needed to get to the right consistency to drizzle over a cake. You may not need the entire amount of icing for the cake.




* Yes, as always, I love using the products from our Oil & Vinegar franchise. In this case the O&V Single Estate Oil is Arbequina from Spain, that has a nice fruity flavor. Feel free to substitute products, just remember, that the better the ingredients, the healthier and tastier the cake.
