Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

I just can’t get enough of apple desserts during Apple Season.

This Apple Crumb Coffee Cake is a perfect morning treat for your family or for your guests during the Holidays.

You can also make Blueberry Coffee Cake with this same basic recipe.

*Substitute the apple topping with a can of any pie filling such as cherry, apple, blueberry or peach!


Serves 10-12



2 cups Bisquick or any other biscuit mix

2 cups flour

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1/2 stick melted margarine

1 cup milk


Apple Topping:

4 apples (peeled and cored and chopped into small chunks)

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 tbsp sugar

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1 tsp of butter or margarine

1/2 tsp of flour

Crumb topping:

1 tbsp flour

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup instant oatmeal (if desired)

1 tbsp melted butter or margarine


Step 1. Apple Topping:

Place all ingredients except the flour into a small saucepan and cook the apples until very well done. Mash with a fork to your desired consistency. Add the flour to absorb liquid and cook on low for about 1 minute. Let cool while the cake bakes.

Step 2. Cake:

In a large mixing bowl, beat sugar and eggs for 1 minute until foamy. Add the remaining ingredients except toppings and mix on low for about 1 minute. The batter will be slightly lumpy. Grease a medium size deep baking pan approximately 13×9. Pour the batter into the pan.

Step 3. Crumb Topping:

Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl. Blend with a fork until it forms a sandy like texture.

Sprinkle the apple topping evenly spread over the batter. Top with the cake with the crumb topping.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until lightly golden brown and tooth pick comes out clean.

Serve hot or cold. Enjoy!

Wake up and smell the goodness with your morning coffee!
