Fresh apple cake

I’ve made a few edits to my original recipe, adding more apples and other seasonal fresh fruit such as rhubarb & saskatoon berries! Also because the coconut crumble topping is so darned good, I’ve adjusted that portion as well!

1/2 cup brown or palm sugar
⅓ cup oil

1 cup buttermilk any kind of milk + 1T vinegar, I use almond milk)
1/2 c water (less if you are using commercial flour)
