Apple Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe

Piece of apple-filled coffee cake on a wire rack.



For as long as I can remember, breakfast has been my favorite meal of the day. Donuts, pancakes drenched in syrup, and muffins are some of the delectable sweet delicacies that my sweet tooth adores, and the fact that it is perfectly normal to consume them first thing in the morning is definitely something to take into consideration.




Indeed, coffee cake is hardly an exception. In spite of the fact that I do not consume coffee, I am a huge fan of a delicious coffee cake, particularly one that has a substantial amount of streusel on top! The apple filling that I added to this one is delicious, and I really enjoy the way it mixes together a variety of flavors and textures.




As is the case with the majority of coffee cake recipes, this one is composed of a few distinct layers. On account of this, the process of whipping up the layers, assembling them, and baking them takes a little bit of time. Nevertheless, it is SO WORTH IT!!!


In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar) by stirring thoroughly to combine them. After that, you will bring in the butter that has been softened, and then you will use a fork to cut the butter into the other ingredients. As you continue to do this, the mixture will eventually resemble sand that maintains its shape when it is squeezed together.


If the butter is really cold and the mixture doesn’t seem to be coming together easily, you can use your hands to mix it. The warmth from your hands will melt the butter just enough to form a nice streusel topping.




Once you have some of the batter in the pan, evenly sprinkle the apple mixture over the batter.

Spoon the remaining batter over the apples and spread to an even layer using the back of a spoon.
