Apple Coffee Cake with Streusel Topping

Pin It Now!
It was time for another ladies coffee get together.  I really wanted to bring something nice and I had found this great coffee cake recipe.  (coffee cake...but no coffee in it...weird right?)  Nah, it's just cause it goes great with coffee!  :)
The recipe is super simple...especially for someone like me who is not fond of baking.  Easy ingredients...not much you can do to mess this up.
The streusel on top was perfect...I love the crunch it added.  You can use almost any kind of apple in this.  I also read reviews of people who used pear and cranberries.  (which both sound good to me!)
Whip this up the next time you want to impress someone (without out a bunch of work involved!)  Feel free to leave off the streusel topping if you want to cut back on the sugar...a nice dusting of cinnamon and sugar will work great too.  Serve this warm for the best taste.
Streusel Recipe:
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup flour
tablespoon water
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
¼ cup butter , softened

mix all ingredients until crumbly -- . (don't over'll end up with a ball)

Cake Recipe


    • 1 cup flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup of sugar
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 5 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1/2 cup whole milk
    • 1 medium baking apple, peeled and sliced

    1 Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 9-inch square baking dish with or pie pan with a 4-cup capacity.
    2 In a medium bowl, whisk vigorously together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
    3 In a separate small bowl, mix 1/4 a cup of the sugar with the cinnamon, set aside.
    4 Using an electric mixer, beat the butter with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Beat in the egg until blended. Add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the milk, beating after each addition until just combined.
    5 Pour half of the batter in the bottom of the baking dish. Lay the apple slices on the batter so they just cover the batter (you may have to overlap some slices). Sprinkle the apples with the cinnamon-sugar mixture, reserving a teaspoon or two to sprinkle on top. Spread the rest of the batter over the apples. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar on top.
    6 Bake the cake for 25 minutes or until it is golden brown and apples start to bubble at the edges.
