Apple coffee cake


While the cake is good the directions made it very difficult to follow and easy to make mistakes. I am going to organize it in such a way that I can understand it. I did not use almonds, orange juice, or cloves. I substituted vanilla extract instead of almond extract.

I made mistakes because the instructions were in a list form one right after another. I became confused and made a mistake with the topping. I love apples and I can not wait to take this to my Mother in laws tonight.

Thank you to Good things Catered for posting this recipe.

Autumn Apple Coffee Cake

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees (325 for dark pans) and prepare a 9 inch springform pan.

Step One:

2 1/2 c. all purpose flour

2 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

-In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt, whisking to combine.

Step Two:

1/2 c. dark brown sugar

1/2 c. sliced almonds, finely chopped

1 Tbsp cinnamon

6 tbs chilled butter pieces

From the 1st bowl remove 3/4 c. flour mixture and place into a medium bowl. Add almonds, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon and chilled butter pieces. Using pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter pieces into flour and sugar mixture until evenly distributed. Place mixture into fridge until ready to use.

Step Three:

1 lb cooking apples, peeled, cored and diced (I used 4 small braeburn and yielded about 2 1/2 c. diced apples)

2 Tbsp fresh orange juice

1/3 c. dark brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp cloves

In another bowl, combine diced apples, orange juice, 1/3 c. brown sugar 2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Stir to combine well and set aside.

Step Four:

1 1/2 c. granulated sugar

1 stick butter, room temperature

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature

2 eggs

1/2 tsp almond extract

In bowl of stand mixer add granulated sugar, room temperature butter and cream cheese. Beat to combine until light in color and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add eggs, one at a time, beating to combine thoroughly between additions. Add extract and beat to combine well. Scrape down sides of bowl and add the large bowl of flour mixture from the beginning. Mix until just combined. Remove bowl from mixer, add the apple mixture and fold in to batter lightly. Add half of batter to springform pan, smoothing out evenly.

Step Five:

Combine remaining brown sugar, cinnamon and sprinkle evenly over batter, spreading almost to edges. Add remaining batter to pan, smoothing out evenly.

Step Six:

Remove almond streusel from fridge and sprinkle evenly over top of batter. Place springform pan into oven and bake until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 60-70 minutes.
