This is such a classic coffee cake recipe. I hesitated to post it. Sometimes I take it for granted that anyone who loves to bake has these classic recipes.
This is a great Sunday Brunch or Church Breakfast recipe.
Apple Coffee Cake:
Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9"X 9" pan with my Pan Release Mix (equal amounts of Crisco, Vegetable Oil and Flour)
I start with 1 C of each mixed well and refrigerated in a jar. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.
1/2 C butter, softened
1 C sugar
2 C flour, sifted
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C sour cream
1 tsp almond extract
4 large baking apples, peel, core. slice
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 C chopped pecans
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl.
Cream until smooth
Pour half the batter in the pan
Top with half of the apples
Sprinkle with half the topping
Pour in remaining batter
Top with remaining apples
Sprinkle with remaining topping
Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center.
Peace in the Kitchen!
