Instructions

  2. In a mixer, blend flour, sugar, kosher salt, baking powder, baking soda, milk, eggs, and vanilla until fully combined. Divide batter evenly between two cake pans.

  5. Bake cakes for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on serving plate.
  6. For the glaze, melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in brown sugar and bring to a boil. Whisk for one minute, then add milk. Bring back up to a boil, remove from heat.
  7. Whisk in powdered sugar and pour glaze immediately over warm cakes. Enjoy warm or room temperature!

Notes

  • Grease and line your pans. I used two 9-inch round cake pans. Line the bottom with parchment paper AND baking spray so the coffee cake slides out easily once its done baking. Or use my homemade cake release!
  • The cake tastes great warm and at room temperature. Why not try it both ways? After letting the cake cool for a few minutes, sink your teeth into a warm slice fresh from the oven. Then, let it keep cooling overnight for a ready-made breakfast the next morning.
  • What kind of apples should I use? I recommend that you use a tart apple like a granny smith, fuji or pink lady. However, any apple variety will taste good!
  • STORAGE: Store this apple coffee cake covered at room temperature. A round tupperware container or cake cover is my preference so it doesn't get sticky with caramel glaze. You can freeze coffee cake before or after adding the glaze. The cake will keep well in the freezer for about a month.
