There’s nothing like a good coffee cake to start the morning. Served with a hot mug of coffee or an ice-cold glass of milk, this freshly baked Apple Coffee Cake takes no time to prepare with a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
I like to use self-rising flour to speed up the baking process, and for a quick cake like this, I dice up Granny Smith apples to incorporate into the batter. I find the juices from the apples keep the cake moist, even after a few days. Plus, the tartness offers a good balance when paired with sugar and cinnamon.
This cake is just a little over an inch thick, so I save the cinnamon and brown sugar for the top only. Using a toothpick, I lightly swirl the two ingredients into the batter, so the traditional coffee cake flavors are present within, but still remain close to the surface to create a crisp top.
