MAKE THE CINNAMON CRUMB TOPPING: Place the butter in a small pot and melt over low heat. Add the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt, and toss to combine.

Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until smooth.

Step 5

Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, then add the sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed.

Transfer about 2/3 of the batter to the prepared pan. Top with the diced apples.

Step 7

Sprinkle with half the crumb topping.

Step 8

Add the rest of the batter. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon crumb mixture on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 F.
