Apple-Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Hello hello! So I just made this a little while ago and I am in love with it. It is amazing. So I am here to share the wonderful recipe with you and then you can go make it right away!

Apple-Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Serves 12

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup diced peeled apple (I used Gala)
Cooking spray

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

1. Preheat over to 350.

2. To prepare cake, lightly spoon 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour into dry measuring cups; level with knife. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon, stirring with a whisk. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine milk, melted butter, vanilla, and egg, stirring with a whisk; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in apple. Pour batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray.

3. To prepare streusel, combine brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, cut in butter with 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle streusel evenly over batter. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean.

Cool 5-10 minutes. I then sprinkled powdered sugar over the top.

So, YUM! This took maybe 8 minutes to prepare. So its super easy and delicious!
