Apple Coffee Cake
Apple coffee cake is the best fall recipe for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. I hosted a coffee for group of volunteers and baked up a couple treats to accompany the mulled cider, coffee and tea.
This Apple Coffee Cake with a Streusel Topping was a huge hit, filled with chopped apples and warm autumn spices.
Apple Coffee Cake
There’s nothing better than a sweet tender slice of coffee cake to nibble on while sipping on coffee and visiting with friends. This apple-filled cake, with its streusel topping, was perfect on a crisp autumn morning. Who doesn’t love the aroma of apples, cinnamon and ginger coming from the oven? I’d happily eat this as a snack or even dessert. Consider it a fabulous multi-purpose cake! As a bonus, it’s a breeze to make and is just as tasty the next day!
A Twist on Emeril’s Coffee Cake
I found the inspiration for this apple coffee cake recipe via The Food Network. Emeril’s version had sour cream, which almost always ensures a moist result. The addition of fruit helps immensely, too. I added some ginger to his original recipe and omitted his brown sugar glaze. The results were spectacular. This Apple Coffee Cake with a Streusel Topping is perfect for any holiday gathering!
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples
- 1/2 cup brown sugar

- In a large bowl, cream together the remaining stick of butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating after the addition of each. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt.
- Add to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream and vanilla. Fold in the apples. Pour into the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly with an offset spatula.
- To make the topping, in a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter, and mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
- Sprinkle evenly over the cake and bake until lightly browned and set, 35 to 40 minutes.
