A Recipe to Kickstart Fall

Standard

LWC member Joan Taylor has shared a delicious apple coffee cake recipe, which is sure whet our appetites for some fall baking! Keep this recipe handy as you get ready for apple picking!

Apple Coffee Cake

  • 4 Eggs
  • 3 Cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 cups of apples

Topping:

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Grease a 10” tube pan and line with wax paper. Joan suggests putting a cookie sheet on the next rack in the oven in case the cake drips. Cream eggs and sugar.  Add milk and vanilla.  Sift dry ingredients together and add to the cream mixture.  Add oil.  Mix thoroughly.  Put 1/3 of the batter in greased and lined pan. Top with 1/3 of the apples and 1/3 of the sugar and cinnamon mix. Repeat three times. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 ½ hours or until a knife comes out clean. Joan said that it usually takes a bit longer.
