I use this great manual timer – it is older than I am and it reminds me of cooking in the kitchen when I was younger ( no digital timers for this gal)


I was busy doing something else when the manual timer went off – if it was digital it would keep reminding me that I have something in the oven.


My cake cooked for about 10 more minutes than I wanted it too so the top got a little too brown for my liking but my family still enjoyed it very much. It is a recipe that I have made a bunch and one of my favorites to make on a Sunday —- so I know it is a winner.

My manual timer is currently on probation… just kidding

And there is no ingredient picture. I accidentally deleted it while I was going through my pictures for this recipe

Seriously not the best way to start a Monday…. Is it too early to get a drink… I am just kidding ( maybe πŸ˜‰ )

Sigh well one interesting thing about this recipe is that I almost always use whole wheat flour ( whenever I can sneak in whole wheat I will) Also to make this dish gluten – free simple use gluten – free flour – use the same measurements

Apple Coffee Cake Recipe

There are two things that make this recipe

1) The apples – I always use granny smith – peeled and sliced. I cook them till slightly soften with sugar and brown sugar in a skillet. It is kinda like apple pie filling ( well my take on it)

2) The pecan brown sugar topping. I take chopped pecans mix them with brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter – this topping is pretty crazy

All of this is one perfect coffee cake πŸ™‚

I really hope you enjoy this recipe

Love You Guys!
