Remember Apple Sharlotka? A beautiful cake that can be fixed on the spur of the moment and make any guest (and host) happy?  Here’s another guest-at-the-door type of cake, also made with apples. Easy Apple Coffee Cake. How easy? Super easy. The cake batter takes a few minutes to put together, the apples are cored and sliced, arranged on top of the batter within a few minutes more, then the slices are sprinkled with cinnamon-infused crumble and crunchy walnuts within seconds. That’s it. Off it goes in the oven and comes out oozing delicious aromas.
This Apple Coffee Cake goes well with a cup of coffee (of course, it is a coffee cake!) or steaming hot tea. And while it is still warm, put a dollop of creamy vanilla ice cream on top – you are going to love it!

Recipe type: Desserts
Serves: 10 servings
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 large red apple of any kind, cored and thinly sliced
  • ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (175ºC).
  2. Mix the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, milk, and oil, and stir until blended. No need for beating vigorously.
  3. Spoon the batter into a greased and floured 9-by 13-inch (23-by-33-cm) baking pan (I use a Pyrex dish), evenly smoothing the top.
  4. Arrange the apple slices in several rows over the batter, alternating red and green apples, and making sure they overlap.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Crumble the mixture over the apples. Sprinkle all over with the walnuts.
  6. Bake the cake until the bottom layer is spongy and it begins to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 45 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
  7. Serve warm (great with ice cream on top) or at room temperature.
  8. Once it has cooled off, you can cover the cake with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days.
