Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

In Breakfast, Brunch on November 15, 2010 at 8:00 am

This delicious treat just made my morning much, much better! I couldn’t have enjoyed it anymore, or the smell of it cooking in my kitchen. Nothing like a nice warm kitchen in this nice fall weather. I started by following The Food Network‘s recipe for Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze. I of course made a few enhancements. Let’s take a look at all the ingredients for the cake part:


I started by peeling and dicing what ended up being a little more than 2 cups of apples, though I wish I had used more. Though there was a delicious amount in the coffee cake.


My next step was to combine the stick of butter, light brown sugar, eggs, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, sour cream, and vanilla in a bowl. I then used a hand mixer to blend it all together until smooth.

Ready for the Apples

I then folded in the apples, and evenly distributed the mixture in the bottom of a dark, 13 inch by 9 inch pan.

Once this was all set, I started to make the crumble topping. Normally, for the first round I would stick to the recipe, but this recipe DID NOT have me making enough crumble topping! Now, reader beware I love crumbles on the top of my coffee cake, so I may have gone a little over board, but still. I thought the result was delicious! Let’s look at the adjustments I made for more crumble topping:

I poured all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and beat it with a hand mixer until the mixture resembled crumbs, then I sprinkled them on top of the coffee cake.

I then put it in the oven, which was heated to 350 °F. The coffee cake baked for 35 minutes, or until I could cleanly pull a knife out of the center of it. As it cooled a little, I made the glaze for the top, and changed the quantities up on this a little too.

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons water

    Brown Sugar Glaze

I drizzled the cooked coffee cake with the glaze and let it harden slightly, before I served/ate this!

Ready to Serve

This is a delicious addition to any brunch or even a breakfast. I absolutely loved this recipe and its result. I loved that it made so much too, and I’m sure my friends will too. This recipe is a complete keeper, and quite easy to make. This dish is a total…

Bon Appetit!
