Apple Coffee Cake Tutorial

This Apple Coffee Cake is the most scrumptious stuff!  The inside is so moist and the tart apples I used really do shine through in this recipe. A must have, trust me!

I can’t express how very much I like to bake.  I can’t say I am a wonderful baker though.  It has taken me a great deal of time and practice to get things down and now it seems old hat.  If you are a beginner just know that sometimes things aren’t going to come out quite right.  Then you will figure out what you did wrong (hopefully) and move on.  It’s a process just like any other.  So, if you are new to baking and trying out new things take your time and you’ll do just fine.

I remember once my daughter decided to make cranberry nut bread and did it several times, once with her father helping her even but it still came out horrid.  It turned out she was using baking soda instead of baking powder.  There is a HUGE difference.  The moment I tasted the bread I knew what was wrong because I had done the same thing and I knew that flavor instantly (it is decidedly NOT pleasant).

Start by reading your recipe and assembling your ingredients.  When I do my videos I have everything measured out in little bowls etc so that I can put it together for you on camera and you don’t have to watch me do all that.  Honestly, that is NOT a bad idea for you to do especially if you have a lot going on (the phone ringing, the dog barking and the baby crying).  If it’s still left sitting there you know you didn’t add the baking powder yet, right? Then just go line by line and do what the recipe tells you to do!

Apple Coffee Cake

1/2 Cup Butter

1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

2 Large Eggs

2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1 Cup yogurt (plain or vanilla)

3 Cups of Peeled, Cored and Chopped Tart Apples (I used Macoun’s)

Topping

1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees.  Grease a 8×8 square pan.

Cream the butter and sugar together and then add the eggs, mixing thoroughly.  In a separate bowl measure out the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and cinnamon) and then sift them together.  Mix a small amount of the flour mixture into the creamed sugar butter and eggs.  Add the yogurt  and mix until combined.  Mix in the chopped apples.  Spread batter into pan.

To make the topping cut the softened butter into the brown sugar, cinnamon and flour until crumbly.  Add topping to the batter in the pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool for ten to fifteen minutes before cutting and serving.

I hope you enjoy this, we certainly do!
