Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake
Yield: 1 10in cake
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 12 oz unsalted butter (3 sticks)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
fillings and toppings:
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (and each slice halved)
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbl cinnamon
  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Grease a 10in cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping the sides of the bowl once or twice.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  5. With the mixer on low alternate adding the dry ingredients and the sour cream - about ⅓ of each at a time. Mix just until combined.
  6. Mix the 1 tablespoon of cinnamon into the ½ cup sugar. Spread half of the batter in your prepared cake pan, getting it all the way to the edges.
  7. Sprinkle about 2 table of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the batter then place a single layer of apples on top of this - pressing the gently into the batter.
  8. Spread the rest of the batter over top - if you are making this ahead of time, stop here and continue to the next step just before baking.
  9. Pour the ½ cup of heavy cream over the top of the cake then sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar evenly over this.
  10. Bake at 350˚F for 45 minutes, until the center is set.
