Apple Coffee Cake

An experiment gone right!

Tonight I made Emril’s Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze

I used 2 medium sized granny smith apples (yes that’s it)!!! And, of course some vanilla ice cream.

Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze

Total Cook Time: 1 hr 15mins

1 stick unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 medium sized Granny Smith apples, cored and chopped

Crumble Topping:
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 TBSP unsalted butter, softened

Brown Sugar Glaze:
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 TBSP water


First, make the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with 2 teaspoons of butter.
  • In the kitchenaid, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating after the addition of each.
  • In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Add to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream and vanilla.
  • Fold in the apples.
  • Pour into the prepared baking dish, spreading out to the edges.

Then, make the crumble topping and bake:

  • In the kitchenaid (set to 2), combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter, and mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Sprinkle the topping over the cake.
  • Bake until golden brown and set, 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.

Then, make the glaze:

  • In a bowl, combine the sugar, vanilla, and water and mix until smooth.
  • Drizzle the cake with the glaze and let harden slightly.

Finally, EAT!  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
