  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • Pinch of salt (1/2 teaspoon)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen baking apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/8 cup all-purpose flour, for crumble
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon, for crumble
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg, for crumble
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, grated
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh or frozen baking apples, for crumble
