Recipe of the week 4: Apple Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This cake is just really good =) We just finished it, and I bet my husband can't wait for the new portion of this one.


  • 1/2 cup of softened butter (1stick)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large apples (sliced)
  • For the topping
    • 1/2 cup of brown sugar (can use regular one)
    • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
    •  1 cup of chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

Preheat oven to 340F, Spray 9 inch baking pan.
Prepare the topping: Combine ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
In a bowl, cream together butter,sugar and eggs. Add flour,baking soda,baking powder,salt, sour cream and vanilla;mix well.
Pour half of the batter into the pan. Layer with half of the apple slices,then half of the topping. Pour in the remaining batter,layer with the remaining apples and cover with the rest of the topping.
Bake for one hour then check if ready by inserting a toothpick in the center (should be dry and clean when comes out)

(I added 4 tbsp of cocoa mostly for coloring - you can definitely skip this step and your cake will be lighter in color)
