Apple chocolate cake with crumbles


This apple chocolate cake with crunchy crumbles is quick and easy to prepare and tastes deliciously moist. The basis is a simple sponge cake.


If you don't have apples, you can use other fruits like pears, apricots or peaches.


This is how the crumble cake succeeds very easily:

  • Mix the flour with the baking powder and cocoa well before processing
  • The butter and eggs should be at room temperature
  • Slightly sour apples fit especially well



  • 100 g flour
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 125 g granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 125 g softened butter
  • 2 eggs (size M)
  • 3 apples


  • 125 g flour
  • 25 g cocoa powder
  • 100 g granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 100 g softened butter



  • Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs.
  • Mix flour with baking powder and cocoa (cinnamon fans can add a little bit of cinnamon here) and add to the dough mixture.Mix everything for a few minutes to a smooth dough
  • Line a springform pan (diameter 24 cm) with parchment paper and butter the edge. Put the batter in.
  • For the topping, wash and peel the apples and cut them into thin slices. Place them like bricks on your dough.
  • Now it’s time for the crumbles: knead the flour, cocoa, cinnamon and sugar together with the butter with your hands until you get a crumbly dough. Spread it on the apples.
  • Bake the cake in a preheated oven at 160°C (hot air) for about 45-50 minutes.
