Can I Make This Without The Apples?

Yes, of course, this coffee cake would be equally amazing without the apples if you are looking for that classic coffee cake flavor. I added the apples, because they are ripe and in season right now! In fact, you could probably add other fruits in as well if you are looking for a special treat.

Other Add In Flavor Options To Try

While apples may not be in season, or they just aren’t your jam (haha, you see what I did there, lol) I have a few other add in ingredients that may make your mouth water. Also, let me know in the comments below if you try any of them!

  1. Blueberries: Fresh or frozen blueberries can provide a burst of sweet and tangy flavor.
  2. Raspberries: Fresh raspberries can add a bright, fruity flavor to your coffee cake.
  3. Strawberries: Sliced fresh strawberries can give your coffee cake a sweet and juicy twist.
  4. Bananas: Mashed ripe bananas can add moisture and a subtle banana flavor to your coffee cake.
  5. Peaches: Sliced or diced fresh peaches can bring a juicy, peachy sweetness to your coffee cake.
  6. Cherries: Pitted and halved cherries, whether sweet or tart, can add a burst of fruity goodness.
  7. Cranberries: Fresh or dried cranberries can provide a tart and slightly sweet element to your coffee cake.
  8. Pears: Diced or thinly sliced pears, such as Bartlett or Anjou, can add a soft, juicy texture and a delicate flavor.
  9. Pineapple: Crushed or diced pineapple can add tropical sweetness and moisture to your coffee cake. (Feeling that pineapple upside down cake vibe!)
  10. Plain: Of course plain is a tried and true option, and always amazing!

When adding fruits to your coffee cake, be mindful of the moisture content and adjust your recipe as needed. You may need to reduce the amount of other wet ingredients, to compensate for the added moisture from the fruits. Additionally, consider how the fruit’s flavor and texture will complement the other ingredients in your coffee cake.

Ingredients To Make Fresh Milled Flour Apple Coffee Cake

So, I make this in a smaller 8×8 glass pan which can make the baking time vary. If you are using a metal baking pan, your baking time will probably be closer to the 35 minute bake time. But, if you are using glass like me, it may take the longer 45 minute bake time. Also, if you want to make a larger batch, this can be doubled and made in a 9×13 baking dish.

  2. Spray your 8×8 pan with oil or line with parchment paper.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350*F.
  4. Peel and dice the apple.

Make the Cinnamon Crumble Mixture:

  1. Take 180g of the fresh milled flour (1&1/2 cup) and then add brown sugar, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk together these dry ingredients.
  2. Then, add melted butter, and vanilla and stir together.

Also, make sure to cream the butter and sugar for the cake portion for the best results!

Make the Yellow Cake Portion:

  1. In a stand mixer (or you can use a hand mixer), add the softened butter and sugar. Cream the butter and sugar until it is lighter in color and fluffy looking (may take 5 minutes.)
  2. Then, add the egg to the creamed butter and sugar, and beat that in.
  3. Add the vanilla, and yogurt, and mix together.
  4. In a separate bowl, add 150g of the flour (should be the rest, about 1&1/4 cup), baking soda, baking powder, and salt. stir until combined.

Assembling & Baking the Apple Coffee Cake

  2. Then, add half the cinnamon/apple crumble over the thin layer of cake batter.
  3. Spread the remaining cake batter over the crumble (it will again seem to be a very thin layer. trust the process! lol)
  4. Lastly, spread the second half of the crumble mixture over the top.
  5. Bake for 35-45 minutes (see notes at the bottom about pan size and type of pan.) You want the internal temperature to read 200*F.
  6. Make the Apple Cider glaze.
  7. Whisk together powdered sugar, and 1 TBSP apple cider. You can then add a little more apple cider to thin out the glaze to your desired consistency.
  8. Drizzle apple cider glaze over the top of the coffee cake.

    I just love all of your recipes. I use freshly milled flour and when I use other websites things don’t always turn out well. When I use your recipes with my freshly milled flour I always know they will be good.

    1. Awww that is wonderful to hear! Thank you! That is the very reason I started my Youtube Channel and this blog with my recipes, because I was tired of throwing food away, because nothing would turn out! So, through trial and error, that is how make my recipes. I pass along everything I learn and share the recipe, because I want others to be able to be successful with their fresh milled flour food! Happy Baking!

    I made a vegan version of this tonight and it was delicious! Thank you for the incredible recipe. I used vegan butter, cashew milk with some apple cider vinegar thickened with a bit of guar gum in place of the yogurt, and a vegan egg replacement. I wasn’t sure with all of the substitutions if it would work, but it did! Thanks for the tip to measure the temperature to make sure it’s done. That and the video were a lot of help.

    1. Yay! I am so happy to hear it turned out great! Thank you for posting incase there are other readers that may be also looking how to turn this into a vegan recipe. Happy Baking!

    I just made this last night and it was so good! It did take almost an hour to put together and into the oven. Then about 50 min to bake in 8×8 metal pan. Just so you’re prepared. The end result was moist, crunchy, soft, and flavorful. The crumble has this incredible texture on top that’s so satisfying. I think sour green apples are the perfect compliment. I might add even more next time!

    So excited to take this to our church group supper tonight (the theme is “breakfast foods”. It turned out beautifully and I thought the Apple Cidar glaze was brilliant. Thanks for all the time you put into these recipes, Kara! They always turn out so well!

    Made this for Mother’s Day weekend! It did not disappoint. I made in a 9×13, doubled batch. It’s almost gone in 2 days! Next time will double the cake part and only do half the crumb topping for the top. Absolutely delicious recipe as is! Thank you for sharing.
