Apple Crumb Sheet Cake will serve a crowd with its irresistible apple cinnamon goodness, crumb topping, and sweet glaze!
I use my half sheet pans so often, but I mostly use them for baking cookies. As much as I love baking cookies, I have to say that I’m a pretty big fan of sheet cakes, too. This Apple Crumb Sheet Cake is a big ol’ cake baked in a half sheet pan for seemingly endless apple and cinnamon goodness.
If you’re feeding a crowd, then this is just the kind of cake you need. It serves a whole bunch of people, and it does so with the irresistible flavors of apples and cinnamon and a sweet crumb topping.
This cake, of course, features lots of apples, but there are also some chopped pecans in there, too, for a little extra flavor and crunch. I really love what they bring to this cake party and will happily toss them in every time I bake this cake. However, you can omit them or substitute another nut if you like.
All that apple goodness is topped with a simple crumb topping made with plenty of brown sugar and another hint of cinnamon. I absolutely adore crumb toppings, and this one is really such a perfect addition to this cake.
For serving this cake, top it with a simple two-ingredient glaze. You can either drizzle the glaze over the entire cake or on each serving. It dresses it up a little and adds some bonus sweetness. The cake is delicious without it, but I like little bit of extra sweetness, especially if I’m serving the cake for dessert. If you’re looking for something to make for a brunch or just sweet snacking, then you may not want to add the glaze. You really can’t go wrong either way.
If you and your crowd are big fans of sweets cinnamon-y apple desserts, then give this Apple Crumb Sheet Cake a try. I think you’ll love its wonderful flavor and soft texture. It’s definitely a favorite around here!
