Apple Coffee Cake
It’s apple season! Take advantage of the deliciousness Maine has to offer with all of the apple orchards that are ready to help you and your family take home something yummy! An apple a day keeps the doctor away…that’s what they say. So whether you’re a McIntosh, Courtland, Gala or a Macoun fan, there is a recipe for everyone to enjoy!
I found this recipe from the Food Network. It is by Emeril Lagasse so you know it has to be good! I made it last night and I was surprised that, number one, it had sour cream as an ingredient and, number two, it was so easy! The crumbles on top are just crunchy enough. Try it and your family will cheer!
Brown Sugar Glaze:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with 2 teaspoons of the butter.
In a large bowl, cream together the remaining stick of butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating after the addition of each. In a separate bowl or on a piece of parchment, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream and vanilla. Fold in the apples. Pour into the prepared baking dish, spreading out to the edges.
To make the topping, in a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter, and mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping over the cake and bake until golden brown and set, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.
