Apple Coffee Cake w/ Streusel Topping

Pinit

Two things make this Coffee Cake as delicious as it is – Apples and the Streusel Topping. Apples make any baked thing very moist, as they continue giving off the moisture into the cake long after they are baked, not only keeping it very moist but also keeping it from going stale longer. The Struesel Topping gives this cake somewhat of a crunch and carameliness (new word that needs it’s places in the dictionary), since it’s sugar, you know… that’s been baked.

This is one of those recipes that you Pin and actually make, because it is definitely not hard to make and asks for ingredients that you most likely have in your house :) Also, you can make it with any type of berry, frozen or fresh. Thanks to BarbaraBakes for this wonderful recipe!
Now let’s get to it now. Here’s how you make it.
Apple Coffee Cake w/ Streusel Topping 
Ingredients:
2 cups all purpose flour (I used  Canadian)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder or 1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar, granulated
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk, room temperature
3 large apples, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
Streusel Topping 
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tbsp butter, melted
No-stick mixture 
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp flour

Peel, core and dice apples into 1/2 inch cubes. Add 1/4 cup flour and toss together.

Whisk 1/2 cup milk and 2 room temperature eggs together. Set aside.
Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 2 cups all purpose flour together, then whisk together with fork or whisk.

 

Pour melted butter into the pyrex dish you’re going to bake the cake in. Brush the inside with the melted butter. Add flour and shake the dish around covering the inside with flour. Set aside.
Turn oven to 350F. Put baking rack in the middle.
Make the streusel topping – Combine melted butter, flour & sugar together, until crumbly mixture forms. Put in fridge until ready to use.
Whisk together (with mixer or a hand+whisk) butter and sugar, for about 3 minutes. While continuing to whisk slowly pour the wet ingredients (milk+eggs) in thirds, down the sides of the bowl, then add the vanilla extract and mix once more. Add the flour+baking soda+salt mixture. Mix just until combined.
Add diced apples to the batter and carefully fold it in.
Add them to the baking dish. Spread around to make an even layer. Remove the streusel topping from fridge and break it up with your hands. Sprinkle the batter with streusel topping.

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing and serving.

Now make some tea or coffee and enjoy the fruit of your labor :)

    In the ingredients you have:
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder or 1 tsp baking soda but in step 3 you have: Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 2 cups all purpose flour together, then whisk together with fork or whisk.
    So what is it?

    Thank you for this delicious recipe! I just made this coffee cake the second time. I’m having trouble with the streusel topping. Instead of it staying crumby it melts to the top after baking. Can you please tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Tell me what you think!
