It's finally starting to feel like fall here, so it was time to make a fall treat. I opted for this delicious sounding, Apple Crumb Coffee Cake. The recipe called for a round springform pan, which may be one of the few kitchen tools I don't have, so I made it in a square baking pan. I started by making the crumb topping. I melted the butter and mixed it together with sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour. I set it aside when done. Next, I used the apple peeler corer slicer to prepare 2 apples. Then, I made the cake. I combined the dry ingredients and whisked them together. I mixed in the butter chunks until it resembled coarse crumbs. Finally, I added in the egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and buttermilk. I poured the batter into my prepared cake pan. Next, I added the sliced apples in layers. I topped it with the crumb mixture and popped it in the oven for about 43 minutes.
After the cake had baked, I mixed together brown sugar, water and vanilla to make the glaze. When the cake had cooled, I poured the glaze on top. We enjoyed the cake later with milk, but ice cream would be a tasty addiction as well. I saved some for us and part went to work with Mike. The was a delicious treat and I highly recommend it to anyone who has some spare apples this fall.
