I just spent most of the day trying to do a video that I could post on line of this lovely breakfast cake. All the steps along the way, etc. It took me hours and hours, but I can't get it to load up and I am exhausted from trying. I don't know how these youngsters do it, I really don't! Never mind we can at least enjoy the fruits of my labours in this delicious breakfast cake. Apple Pie Coffee Cake!
It is a simple cake, easy and quick to make, which is why I chose it to do a video of. And it is a real family pleaser. There is nothing fancy here, but it is Todd's favourite breakfast cake.
The batter is simple . . . flour, eggs, spices, sugar, a bit of oil and vanilla . . .
It is roughly half batter and half apples. So . . . stogged full of lovely tart Granny Smiths. That's what I like to use. They hold their shape well and have a nice flavour.
There is a bit of crunch on top which comes from a final sprinkle of demerara (turbinado) sugar just prior to baking . . . and I like to dress it up a bit when it comes out of the oven with a light dusting of confectioners sugar . . .
The warm baking spices which are used fill the house with a delectable aroma . . . cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom . . . home sweet home . . .
We enjoy it with a nice hot cup of herbal tea, or sometimes a white hot chocolate goes nicely. Todd likes his with lashings of cream drizzled over top. I wish I could afford the calories myself!
