Coffee Talk… Apple Breakfast Coffee Cake

I sprinkled it with my Vanilla Bean Sugar.  Yum!
A few years ago an old friend made this for one of our morning coffee dates, when all our babes were teeny.  I loved it then, and now it’s a family favourite….

  2. Add eggs, one at a time.
  3. Then add vanilla.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
  5. To the butter mix, add 1/3 flour, then 1/2 milk. Repeat until all combined.
  6. Butter and flour a Bundt pan.
  7. In another bowl, combine apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  8. Put clumps of the cake batter around the bottom of the pan, followed with the apple mixture, and repeat until finished.

    is it possible to make it not in a bundt pan?

  10. Hi Anonymous! I’ve never made it any other way, but if I were to try a different pan, I would use a sheet pan (9×13), and clump the batter and fruit randomly over it. And bake it a little less timewise. Just watch it during the baking process… Good luck!

    Thanks Jo-Anna, I really need to get a sheet cake pan. I currently only have a loaf tin and a square brownie pan…don’t think either of those will work!

  12. Yum! This looks perfect to serve when having a friend over to catch up… thanks for sharing!
