I was hesitant to post this recipe, since it looks a bit weird different. However, I have promised myself to share with you everything yummy I made in my little kitchen, and this Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake screams DELICIOUS!

I feel no shame telling you that my hubby and I killed this cake the same day it was baked, actually only one slice left which smartly vanished the next day.

More about Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

This Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake was moist, delicious, and you can imagine how a topping of cinnamon and butter must have smelled like when it came out of the oven.

Another Plus to this cake, that it hardly takes time, from start to finish. The recipe is ridiculously easy and everything you will need should be in your kitchen already, unless you are out of apples.

Talking about apples, this Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake recipe is so forgiving, you can use any type of apples you want, and I actually used one apple (if you have large apples you may need to use a bit more than half), so practically speaking it really cheap to make it if you are on a budget.

  • Cake:
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon oil
  • 3/4 cup sliced apples
  • Toppings:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 cup white caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon all purpose flour


  • In a bowl, sift or whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Keep aside
  • In a different bowl, add all the cake ingredients except the apples. Beat well then pour on the flour and combine gently, over mixing will this cake tough. Add the apple slices and fold gently.
  • Pour in a greased and floured 9x9" baking pan.
  • Mix the topping ingredients and distribute on the cake.
  • Bake in a preheated oven 162C/325F and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  • This cake is best served warm or at room temperature. Do not heat it in the microwave, it will become tough and chewy (Experience speaks).

  1. It looks so moist and I love the artful topping!

  2. I have too many apples in my kitchen at the moment, this sounds like the perfect cure!!

      Hey Rahul, we buy apples all the time and that’s why I have to be creative and use them before they spoil. I hope you like my recipe 🙂

  3. I don’t think it looks weird at all, I think it looks wonderful!

      Thanks Chris, my husband asked me to name it Apple Crater cake 🙂 and obviously I didn’t.

  4. MMMM… Wonderful!!! I could eat at least two slices. I just subscribed to your YouTube. Are you gonna make more videos?

    • munatycooking

      Hey Sandra, thanks for your sweet words 🙂 … I would love to make videos but right now I’m busy with so many things. I will try to start again in the future!

  5. This is a delicious looking coffee cake. Nice post.

  6. Going to attempt making this today but you forgot to mention exactly what is done with the sliced apples in written recipe. Do they get folded into cake batter or arranged on top before covering with crumble topping? Other than that sounds pretty simple and elicious!! Can’t wait to see how mine turns out! Thanks for your recipe!!
