A real classic: wonderfully juicy and buttery apple pie with sprinkles. Because the base and crumble are made from the same batter, this is a particularly quick recipe.
Apple crumble cake is always possible: for coffee and parties, for garden parties and kindergarten. Anyone who likes buttery sprinkles and juicy apples will love it! And with my simple recipe for apple pie with streusel you will definitely succeed too.
There are very different recipe variants, sometimes with batter, sometimes with yeast dough. All delicious, of course. But the best apple pie with sprinkles is based on a kneading dough or stirred shortcrust pastry. You realize again that butter is simply a great flavor carrier ?. Incidentally, the apple crumble cake is quick: you only have to prepare a single batter. While other recipes consist of two different doughs for crust and crumble, here it’s one and the same. Which of course is much less complicated as a result. The kneading dough for the crumble base cake with apples doesn’t even have to cool before you use it. Part of it goes straight to the bottom and the edge of the springform pan, part of it on the apple mixture of grandma’s apple crumble cake.
Small catch on the recipe ?: It makes sense to let the cake cool down completely before cutting it. Then he is more stable. If the perfect look is not important to you, it tastes good Apple shortcrust cake with sprinkles still warm but, to be honest, particularly stunning …
How to vary grandma’s apple pie with sprinkles
The recipe itself is very basic and reminds a bit of grandma’s covered apple pie. As with this one, you can also refine the apple filling wonderfully by adding raisins, chopped almonds or nuts, for example. For me personally it has to be an apple crumble cake with cinnamon. More is more ?

Apple pie with sprinkles: a real classic! Because you only need one batter for the base and crumble, the recipe for grandma’s apple crumble cake is quick and easy
Lot: 1 Springform pan (26 cm)
Line the bottom of the 26 cm springform pan with baking paper, lightly grease the edges and dust with flour.
Knead all ingredients to a crumble dough (stirred shortcrust pastry). Wrap and cool for about 15 minutes. Remove about two thirds for the base and edge, shape a ball out of it and roll it out a little larger than the size of the baking pan. Or distribute the sprinkles directly in the mold, press them together and pull up one edge.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top and bottom heat. Peel and clean apples, cut into cubes. Mix with sugar, juice and cinnamon. Spread the apple mixture on the floor. Top with the remaining sprinkles.
Bake the cake for about 55 minutes, if necessary cover at the end so that it does not get too dark. Let cool in the mold before loosening.
