Coffee cake is a moist, fluffy vanilla-scented bread that tastes amazing no matter what time of the day it is!

A Coffee cake lover will find that this is no ordinary delicious cake, though – it has a special ingredient: apple pie filling. The combination of apple pie filling with a cinnamon sugar topping is a perfect match for coffee cake.

One of my favorite things to do every fall is to visit the local apple orchard to go apple picking. This recipe is a great way to use up your own fresh apples.

This amazing coffee cake will have a family favorite in no time. This Apple Coffee Cake is so delicious between the secret center of apple pie filling and streusel topping!

If you’re like me, then the best way to start or end your day is with a good cup of coffee and cake. Typically, we think of coffee cake as a breakfast food, but this easy recipe can be eaten from brunch recipes or dessert.

I’ve found that eating it for dessert is my favorite way to enjoy it because the apple pie filling mixed in makes it sweet enough to eat on its own. But, it’s just as a delicious breakfast with a cup of tea.

Let’s get started making your apple coffee cake.

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

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

Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan using a rubber spatula and then spoon some apple filling into the center – 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.

In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter with the crumb topping ingredients and then sprinkle on top of batter.

Bake the whole thing in preheated oven for a total time of 30-35 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean of any batter (it will have some apple pie filling stuck to it).

Happy baking!

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!
