Apple Cinnamon Streusel Cakes

Four and a half months ago Eric and I moved to Denver.  In that period of time, here’s what we’ve learned about Denver weather.

  1. Just when you think you’ve gotten it figured out, it goes ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
  2. There is no smooth glide into seasons.  Day 1 winter and snowing. Day 2 Summer and HOT.  Seriously the day after these photos was taken, it was 90 degrees.  What?














To sum it up, we have learned NOTHING.  When they tell you Denver weather is unpredictable, they ain’t lyin!

So yesterday morning we woke up and it is officially FALL!  Last night walking to happy hour and a little Broncos game action, I could have worn a sweater.  A sweater people!  I could also have worn my blue and orange scarf, had I been smart enough to, say check the temperature before heading out.  Alas I was definitely not that smart, because I just assumed it was still hot.  Read number 1 above.  ha ha ha ha

I made a photographed this recipe about 3 weeks ago, but it just seemed like not the right time to post it.  Warm, apple, cinnamon-y sugary goodness.  August is not the right time.  But when you suddenly wake up to a crisp morning.  You realize, yup it’s time.  It’s time to show the web world these individual apple cinnamon streusel cakes.  And yes, individual.  Read: You don’t have to share!

These also get put together in about 5 minutes with a few very basic pantry ingredients.  P.S. Have you seen the new Foodie’s Diet pantry?  If not, check it check it.  Pop them in the oven, and you have a bowl full of warm cinnamon-y apple-y goodness (enough of the everything ending in “-y’s” already Amy!)

If you want to make this for one, just divide everything in half, super easy.  The apple, eat is as a snack while you wait for your cake to bake :)
