Apple hazelnut crumble cake – paleo

Apple crumble cake – matching my London trip this week, I created this paleo apple hazelnut crumble cake recipe.

Great Britain is know for crumble and what is there better than a warm apple cake straight from the oven that smells like heaven due to the sweet apple juices and warming spices that fill the air while baking?

While the original crumble cake is made with lots of butter, flour and sugar, this paleo cake is a healthier version. It still is a rich cake but indulging form time to time is so necessary to feed your mind and soul!
