Apple Coffee Cake

You guys know I just love a good coffee cake. I mean there’s nothing better than an afternoon treat of coffee cake and a cup of coffee or tea.

One of our favorite fall activities is to visit local apple orchards to pick our own apples. I love the smell of apple cinnamon baking in my kitchen. There’s nothing better than finally being able to bake once the cool Fall air comes along!

This apple coffee cake is so delicious between the secret center of apple pie filling and the streusel topping, you will have a family favorite in no time!

What you will need to make an apple coffee cake:

apple coffee cake ingredients

vegetable oil
eggs
vanilla extract
milk
sugar
flour
baking powder
salt
cinnamon
brown sugar
butter
1 can apple pie filling

Let’s get started making your apple coffee cake.

Preheat oven to 350F and grease or line a standard-sized loaf pan and set aside.

eggs for apple crumb cake

In a large bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, vanilla and milk. Add in the sugar and continue to beat until no sugar crystals remain.

flour

In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

Stir the dry ingredients into the oil mixture until just combined.

The number of apple layers you want in your cake will effect your assembly. For one apple layer, place 2/3 of the batter in the loaf pan and then spoon some apple pie filling into the centre – leaving 1” all around the apple pie filling to avoid it burning and causing the loaf to break in half. You may want to press down the apple pie filling a bit with the back of a spoon.

Pour the remaining batter over the apple layer and smooth down.

In a small bowl, combine the streusel topping ingredients and then sprinkle over the wet batter.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean of any batter (it will have some apple pie filling stuck to it).

Storing your Apple Coffee Cake

To store your cake, keep it in an airtight container for 2-3 days (if it lasts that long)! Or if you want to make it advance, it freezes great. Wrap your cake in plastic wrap and store it in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just dethaw on the counter when you are ready to enjoy!
