I have been making this recipe for several years now, and it is a wonderful breakfast, snack or dessert. I usually make this when apples are in season because the sugar amount can be reduced by half. This is a delicious alternative to apple pie. I have make this will Fuji and Golden Delicious apples. Over the years, I have tweaked it to make it healthier. 1) Substitute vegetable oil for the butter, 2) increase the amount of apples, 3) used nonfat yogurt instead of sour cream, 4) substituted the 1/3 of the flour amount to whole wheat, and 5) cut the sugar by half. I have also added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and cinnamon to the batter. Whether you follow the recipe or make slight variations, this will come out great.
This was pretty good. I only had an 8x8 square pan, so that's what I used and it did overflow a little bit in the oven. I followed the recipe exactly other than that I added a topping that consisted of 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 cup chopped pecans and 1 Tbsp. flour. It took an hour and 15 minutes to bake. The sliced apples were great in it and the texture perfect!
This is a superb coffee cake. It is moist and flavorful and perfect with a morning cup of coffee. I made it exactly as written. It needed slightly more than an hour to cook.
A delicious coffee cake! I substituted oil for the butter and it turned out great. I will make again - thank you :)
Very Good Cake ! Especially delicious the next day.
Delicious. I used only 1/4 C butter and substituted fat-free yogurt for the sour cream. I also chopped about a cup of fresh cranberries and added them to the apples. It came out looking beautiful and ever so tasty. Thanks for the recipe.
*wow* we loved this cake. I used johnagold apples as well as white sugar for the topping part, I liked the way the apples made a little syrup after sitting for a few minutes. Very good instructions. Mine baked up in 50 minutes and I served warm with ice cream what a nice treat. The cake stayed moist the next day.
Omg. This is so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have made it 2 times and every time it is gone very fast. Thank you for posting ellie
Lovely! It's very moist, rich, and not too sweet. It almost tastes like apple pancakes. I used Jonagold apples. In the future I might make a crumbly topping with some chopped walnuts for a little sweet crunch.
