Apple Coffee Cake

I have always loved dessert with warm fruit. It is definitely a weakness of mine. Particularly being pregnant, desserts have been even more of a friend to me. I've found that I could have dessert with every meal it seems! When I came across this recipe, I couldn't wait to try it because it seemed like a cake variation of apple pie which is one of my favorite desserts. Thankfully, it didn't disappoint! Even hubby who doesn't really like eating sweets said it was good. He did however have to point out that it would've been much better with some ice cream though...


5 Granny smith apples, peeled and sliced
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1 tbl of cinnamon

3 cups All Purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. of vanilla
4 eggs
1/4 tsp. of salt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup of apple sauce
1/2 cup vegetable oil


Preheat oven at 350°F and grease a 9×13 baking dish. In a medium bowl, toss sliced apples, 1/3 cup of sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside.

In a mixing bowl combine flour, 2 cups sugar, baking powder,vanilla, eggs, salt, orange juice, apple sauce, and vegetable oil. Using an electric mixer, blend together until mostly smooth 5 minutes. Pour half the batter into baking dish and arrange apple slices on top.

Pour and spread the rest of the batter on top of the apples. Bake for 60 minutes or until done. Cut coffee cake into squares and serve warm (preferably with ice cream). Enjoy!
