Hi Ann, I am interested to bake this care. So appreciate if you could help me with these questions. Thanks and appreciate it!

should the butter for the crumble topping be very cold or room temperature?

should the crumble topping be like breadcrumbs after they have been mixed?

do I cream the butter and sugar with an electric handheld mixer? If yes, how long?

how long must I beat the mixture with an electric handheld mixer after the addition of whipped cream?

do I continue to beat the mixture with an electric handheld mixer after adding the vanilla extract?

do I continue to beat the mixture with an electric handheld mixer after each addition of egg? If yes, how long must I beat after each addition of egg?

am I supposed to mix flour into the batter with a spatula or using the electric handheld mixer? If using an electric handheld mixer, is it on low speed?

I don&#39t have an 8" round baking tin can I use a 8" square instead? Any change in baking time?

Thanks and appreciate your patience but really would like to hear from you!

Hi Ai Li,hehee… you got a long list of questions ^_^I already stated soft butter for the crumble.Not to worry about the crumble, just mix them with your finger tip and it&#39s not very fine like breadcrumb because of the chopped walnuts.Sorry I never use a electric handheld mixer before. I always used kenwood mixer or kitchen aid to beat the butter and sugar and I never check my beating time. As long the mixture looks pale white and light, I&#39ll add in the next ingredient. Only take a minute to combine the whipping cream together. Yes, add in the vanilla extract and continue to add in the egg one at a time at low speed. When you see the egg is mixed well in the batter, then continue to add in the next one.Just slowly pour the flour into the batter and continue to mix at low speed until combined.If you&#39re using a 8&#39 square tin, the cake will be lower. For timing you can test it with a skewer after 40 minutes of baking.Hope I have answered all your questions πŸ™‚

I love crumb topping! Next time I will have to try adding some nuts into it. Apples will be coming into season very soon and this recipe will be a perfect one to try. I can almost smell the wonderful scent coming from the kitchen.

I can just imagine how amazing this would smell baking in my oven. And of course it would taste even better still warm from the pan. Apple is such a wonderful, affordable fruit baked or raw.
