 Ingredients List

  • Cake:
  • 2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, divided
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of sour cream
  • 2 small apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag of fresh cranberries, rinsed and dried
  • Crumb:
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of light muscovado sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of unsalted butter, melted


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9”³ x 13”³-inch baking pan with non-stick baking spray. Line it with a sheet of parchment paper leaving a generous overhang for easy removal; set aside.

Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together 2/3 cup of sugar, lemon zest and butter. Add eggs, one at a time then vanilla extract.

In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the dry mixture into the egg mixture, 1/3 at a time, mixing each time until just moistened, while scraping down the sides. Add sour cream and mix until combined (do not overmix).

In a small bowl add sliced apples and douse with lemon juice, using your fingers to combine; set aside.

Dollop batter into the prepared pan, using a spatula to spread the batter into an even layer. Place the apple slices over the top of the batter, then place the cranberries over the apple slices. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar over the top.

For the crumb: Mix flour, muscovado sugar, salt and butter in a medium bowl with your fingertips until it looks like wet sand. Sprinkle evenly over the entire batter and bake for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick/tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool completely before cutting into the pan. Once cooled, cut into squares and serve.
