Glazed Apple Spice Crumb Cake
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (one stick)
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Greek yogurt
2 cups peeled and chopped apples
1-3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup butter (one stick)
1-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
3-5 TBS half and half (or milk)
1/ tsp vanilla extract
Melt the butter and whisk in the white and brown sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the flour and stir until it resembles dough. Set aside to cool.
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees and spray an 9 inch pan with 3 inch sides (springform pan) with oil and set aside.
In a bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together. Beat the butter and brown sugar on medium-high until thoroughly combined and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add the yogurt and mix. Add the dry ingredients and hand stir until just combined - no over stirring. Fold the chopped apples into the thick mixture.
Spread into the prepared pan and sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over all. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove the sides and slide onto the wire rack.
Mix the ingredients together until well combined and drizzle over the top of the cake. Cool a bit more and devour.
