Apple season brings about the need to find delicious ways to incorporate them into my baking.  Not a problem here, one of my favorite Fall flavors is apples and cinnamon.  The aroma permeates through the house and always makes me feel warm and cozy. Doesn’t the idea of apple coffee cake just bring all of those feelings to mind?

This apple coffee cake has a layer of streusel and apples in the center of the cake and a generous amount of streusel on top as well.  As you’ll see looking at the recipe , it has both butter and vanilla yogurt in the batter which makes it extremely soft and moist.

This isn’t an overly sweet apple cake, coffee cakes usually aren’t. Which suits my husband very well , he has dubbed it “A First Prize Winner”!  He loved it!  Apple Coffee Cake is made in a 13×9 inch cake pan so it’s perfect for making and sharing at work or as a wonderful treat for holiday guests.  Let’s gather the ingredients and make it together. 

Apple Coffee Cake Ingredients:

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter – cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Cake Batter Ingredients:

  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 11/2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs – room temperature
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 5 medium apples (Golden Delicious or Granny Smith Apples) peeled, cored and diced

How To Make The Topping For the Apple Coffee Cake

We start the recipe by first greasing a 13×9 inch baking pan and preheating the oven to 350 degrees. To make the topping for the cake –  Place 11/4 cups light brown sugar, 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup room temperature butter and 1 Tablespoon cinnamon into a medium size bowl.  Mix the ingredients with a fork until the topping is crumbly and the butter is blended in.  Add the pecans to the bowl and mix them into the topping.

How To Make The Cake Portion

Place 3 1/4 cups flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl. Stir to combine the ingredients and set them aside.  Using another large bowl cream the butter and sugar together until they are light and fluffy. 

Beat the eggs into the beaten butter and sugar mixture one at a time, beating well after each egg addition. After the eggs are beaten in add the vanilla extract and vanilla yogurt to the bowl.  With the mixer on low speed beat the flour, baking powder and baking soda into the mixture just until incorporated. 

Spoon about 3 cups of the batter into the bottom of your greased 13×9 inch pan.  Smooth the batter out with a spatula to level it out. Sprinkle the batter with 1/4 cup of the streusel mix and the diced apples. 

Sprinkle another 1/2 cup of streusel mixture over the batter. Spoon the remaining batter over the streusel and apples and top with the remaining streusel. Press the streusel down into the batter lightly with your hand. Place the cake into the preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven to a wire rack to cool completely before serving. 

This delicious coffee cake is What’s For Dessert?! And you’re going to love it!
