Apple Coffee Cake is a delightful treat perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as an afternoon snack. It combines the sweetness of apples with a moist, tender cake, topped with a crunchy cinnamon streusel. It’s sure to be a hit with its warming, comforting flavors.


For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups apples, peeled and chopped (about 2 medium apples)

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch square baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Fold in the chopped apples.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, spreading it evenly.
  6. To make the streusel topping, combine brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  7. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the cake batter.
  8. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve the Apple Coffee Cake warm or at room temperature.
