Apple Cinnamon CoffeeCake

by katerina on November 19, 2007

Ivonne from Cream Puffs in Venice had a brilliant idea to try and get through some of the recipes in her stock pile – Magazine Mondays. I also have a stack of magazines which seem a mile high and which I never cook out of, so I am going to join her this week a day early. I even made an effort to do some organization, going through some of my old magazines and clipping out what I wanted to make – and even better finally making one!


This came from the November edition of Cooking Light. It is the first time I have ever bought the magazine but I really liked it. It had lots of good ideas and recipes to be inspired from. The cake was good and reasonably healthy, my only changes next time would be to cut back a bit on the brown sugar in the streusel – I found it a but sweeter then necessary.

(makes 8×8 cake)

Cake:
1.5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup apple, peeled and diced
cooking spray

Streusel:
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt for cake with a whisk. In a separate bowl combine milk, melted butter, vanilla and egg. Make a well in the flour mix and pour liquid mixture in. Combine with the whisk just until moist. Fold in apple. Pour batter into a sprayed 8-inch square baking pan.

To make streusel combine the remaining brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender add in the butter. Sprinkle streusel over batter and bake at 350F for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 mins before serving.[/print_this]
