Apple Crisp Coffee Cake

Apple Crisp Coffee Cake

 

A moist and flavorful coffee cake studded with fresh apple chunks and with a crumb topping and brown sugar glaze. Every fall morning should be started this way.

Baked in a 9×13-inch pan, this Apple Crisp Coffee Cake is large enough to feed several large families.

Lots of chopped pecans in the topping give the coffee cake a buttery crunch.

I like to use a tart apple, like Granny Smith, to get a nice contrast with the sweet crumb topping and brown sugar glaze. Or use a mixture of Granny Smith and an apple like Honeycrisp which is a little sweeter and softer.

Some ground cinnamon gives plenty of fall flavor. You could top it with vanilla ice cream and serve it for dessert. Warm of course.

The wonderful scents coming from the oven as this coffee cake bakes……….Bonus Points.

Fall baking is so heavenly!

  1. Made this today to take to a tennis match and everyone loved it! I made a caramel sauce instead of the glaze and it was really good!! Thanks for a great recipe!

  2. Can you make this in 2 8×8 pans and freeze it? I just went to an apple orchard and have so many apples I need to use up and this sounds like the perfect recipe to use!

  3. Hi Christine,
    I’ve been a professional chef and have great recipes from my pastry chefs over the years as well as a room full of books. I came across this apple crumb recipe the other day and wanted to say that it is one of the best I’ve ever eaten! I’m sharing it with my tribe in my newsletter tomorrow it’s that’s good. I didn’t have sour cream so used full fat plain yogurt and it is so good I have a hard time not picking at it throughout the day and had to hide it from hubby to ensure he didn’t eat it all.
    I’ll be stopping by for more of your recipes in the future for sure.

  4. Made this this morning and it was amazing! I was a little worried about my ‘batter,’ which was almost the consistency of bread dough (I used gluten-free flour), but the results were perfect. I really love the glaze; I subbed apple juice for the cider and it turned out great.

  5. Made this the other day and it was so delicious! I reduced the sugar in the cake to 1 cup. Perfect served with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream!
