Ingredients:

For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Apple Pie Filling:

  • 2 cups of apple pie filling (canned or homemade)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Make the Streusel Topping: In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, melted butter, and cinnamon for the streusel topping. Mix until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set it aside.
  3. Prepare the Cake Batter: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the sour cream. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  6. Layer the Cake: Spread half of the cake batter into the prepared baking dish. Smooth it out evenly.
  7. Add the Apple Pie Filling: Spoon the apple pie filling over the cake batter layer, spreading it out evenly. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the apples.
  8. Top with Remaining Batter: Drop spoonfuls of the remaining cake batter over the apple filling. Gently spread it out with a spatula to cover the apples as much as possible.
  9. Add Streusel Topping: Sprinkle the prepared streusel topping over the entire cake.
  10. Bake: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, and the top is golden brown.
  11. Cool and Serve: Allow the coffee cake to cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
  12. Serve: Slice and serve your delicious Apple Pie Filling Coffee Cake. Enjoy!
