Welcome to the first weekend of Fall! Do you have any outdoor, Fall plans? Attending a fun festival, visiting a pumpkin patch or local cider mill, picking fresh apples or enjoying a little wine tasting while taking in the beautiful Autumn colors at a local vineyard? Those are some of my favorite Autumn things to do, but first and foremost comes the food. Fall weekends are the best because you can take your time and really enjoy your family, you home and your breakfast. This delicious Fresh Apple Coffee Cake with a hot cup of coffee is how we are starting our day today!
Apples are wonderful and to me, it just wouldn’t be Fall without them. Every year our whole family heads to the local apple farm and we spend a few hours picking fresh apples. My favorite apples to bake with are Cortland apples, but I love McIntosh apples for this purpose too. In addition to those tasty varieties, we always pick up a few others just snacking on too. Pumpkin can wait until October, in my kitchen I’m busy baking with apples right now! 🙂
Freshly picked, chopped and juicy apples are mixed into a cinnamon spiced moist batter and topped with a delicious buttery walnut crumble for the perfect Autumn coffee cake that you can share with your loved ones this season.
Enjoying a slice of this coffee cake with a cup of hot coffee in the morning out on your patio or deck while the crisp breeze blows and colorful leaves gently fall from the trees sounds wonderful doesn’t it?
The best part about this recipe is that it’s really simple. You can put this together in about 15 minutes, bake it in the evening and you’ve got it ready to go for the next day. I love waking up to something yummy that’s all ready to eat…even if I did have to make it myself. By the way, this recipe is also freezer friendly, so make a few of these coffee cakes over the next few weeks, and you will have them available for company around Thanksgiving and the Holidays! Yum!
If you’re headed out to the apple farm this weekend or your local fruit & vegetable stand, grab a few apples for this recipe. You don’t want to miss it! Happy Fall!
