Apple-Cinnamon Coffee Cake.  
So awhile back, aythia was talking about how she likes to bake and then put up pictures of some really, really tasty looking yummies she had made. I was slightly salivating, I’ll be honest. It was also the same week that my mom had brought over a few pieces of desert for me and my sister. She had decided to make this apple cinnamon coffee cake recipe that she has had for ages. After I told aythia how much I had drooled on my computer while looking at her pictures of cakes and whatnot, I told her about the coffee cake I had earlier that week. I maybe described it in vivid slightly orgasmic detail and she immediately and appropriately responded, “I want that recipe!”

So…I got it from my mom. I told her that I was describing how good it was to a friend and she asked for the recipe. My mom was delighted. But I have since been lazy about typing it out because well, you all know me by now. Except now it is aythia’s birthday, so I thought I would finally get around to getting this up for her.

And, of course, for all of you as well, because you are more than welcome to give it a try. Let me know if you do and how you liked it - my mom will be thrilled to hear! (Even if she thinks when I say 'friend', I mean people I go out for coffee with and not people I read gay porn with).


I wish I had a picture of it to show you, but alas you’ll have to read the recipe to believe me that it is D-Licious.

Apple-Cinnamon Coffee Cake
8 apples - peeled, cored & cut (I only use 4)
1T cinnamon
5T sugar
2 ¾ C. flour
1T baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 C. veg. oil
1 ¾ C. sugar
¼ C. orange juice
2 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease rectangular baking pan. Toss apple chunks with cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.

2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. In separate bowl combine oil, OJ, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs to wet ingredients, mixing well. Pour ½ of batter in pan. Top with apples. Pour other ½ in & top with remaining apples. Sprinkle top with crumb mixture.

Crumb Topping
½ C. flour
½ tsp. cinnamon
4T butter (softened)
½ C. brown sugar

Combine ingredients until they resemble coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over cake and bake for 1 ½ hours or until testor comes out clean.


I hope that all makes sense, as I know zero about baking.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, aythia! Hope it was a good one, darling. /smishes/

I am salivating just thinking about the coffee cake, to be honest. You should definitely give it a try!

I think I'll make it Friday or Saturday. Tonight, I'm too tired to stay up any longer. And it's not even eight-thirty yet. Boo on long work days!

That sounds truly yummy.

It is so good, I kid you not. Ever since I posted this, I have been thinking up ways to bribe my mom into making me some more!

My mouth is watering. There isn't even any chocolate in it, and my mouth is still watering! That's high praise indeed, coming from someone who is this addicted to chocolate.

Ikr? I am the same way - if there isn't chocolate in it, I don't want it. But this coffee cake, just...damn it is good. Dammit, now I am craving it again. This weekend I am trying some of my aunt's carrot cake. Is there such a thing a chocolate carrot cake? I hope so. ;)

There should be! There's no problem that chocolate cannot solve, as the wise Buffy once said.

(Sherlock icon because I didn't have a chocolate one (blasphemy) and I'm in England so that makes some vague sort of sense, right?)
