Apple Crumble Cakes

Apple Crumble Cakes |

Fall is apple picking season and no dish is more perfect to celebrate this season than these little Apple Crumble Cakes. This dessert is actually three layers: cake, cinnamon tossed apples and a buttery crumble. I’m drooling just typing this description out. *mops up keyboard*. Anyway, the individual ramequins make it the perfect dessert to serve at a dinner party. I used 4.25 inch ramequins, which is a great sharing size or a very generous single portion. You can certainly scale these down and bake them in smaller ramequins, simply scale back the cooking time. Enjoy!
