Apple Crumb Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

I made this recipe as a Thanksgiving dessert -- it isn't too sweet, but it is delicious.  It could probably make for a decadent breakfast food as well.

1 stick salted butter
1.5C brown sugar
2 large eggs
2C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt 
1C sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Granny Smith apples, cored and chopped (I used my Pampered Chef Manual Food Processor)

crumble topping
1/2C brown sugar
1/2C all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tbs salt butter, softened

brown sugar glaze
1/2C brown sugar 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
2 tbs water

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl (I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer), cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  5. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  6. Add dry mixture to butter, alternating with the sour cream and vanilla.
  7. Stir in apples.
  8. Pour batter into prepared baking dish, spreading out to the edges.
  9. To make topping - combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter. Mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  10. Sprinkle topping over cake and bake until golden brown and set, about 45 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and left cool on wire rack for at least 10 minutes.
  12. To make glaze - combine sugar, vanilla, and water, mixing until smooth.
  13. Drizzle glaze over cake and let harden. 
  14. Enjoy!
