Welcome to the first weekend of Fall! Do you have any outdoor, Fall plans? Attending a fun festival, visiting a pumpkin patch or local cider mill, picking fresh apples or enjoying a little wine tasting while taking in the beautiful Autumn colors at a local vineyard? Those are some of my favorite Autumn things to do, but first and foremost comes the food. Fall weekends are the best because you can take your time and really enjoy your family, you home and your breakfast. This delicious Fresh Apple Coffee Cake with a hot cup of coffee is how we are starting our day today!

  • For the Cake:
  • 3 cups Cortland (or your favorite baking apples) apples, peeled and chopped small
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • For the Crumble Topping:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • pinch of salt

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Peel and chop your apples, and set them aside.
  • In your Kitchen Aid mixer combine the sugars,dry ingredients and spices.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, oil and applesauce and mix until incorporated. The batter will look a little dry but don't worry. :)
  • Add the apple mixture and stir well until it becomes a nice batter.
  • Pour the batter into a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the crumble ingredients and mix together well and create the crumble with a fork.
  • Sprinkle the crumble evenly on top of the coffee cake.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes (ovens and cooking times may vary) or until a tooth pick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool for 20 minutes, cut and serve.= if you would like this warm.
  • If not, cover and enjoy the next day.
  • Left over cake may be covered and stored in the refrigerator and reheated in a low oven or microwave the next morning.
  • You may also freeze left over cake in an airtight container.
  • Serves 8-12 depending on how large you would like the pieces.
  • Enjoy!
