Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Apple crumb coffee cake made with Greek yogurt, cinnamon and lots of apples!  Top it with the caramel sauce.  Perfect for breakfast and dessert! This is a very basic everyday cake I’ve been making a lot lately.  Just a good simple apple crumb coffee cake.  I drizzle it with the caramel sauce (or dulce de leche), but it doesn’t have to be – it’s good on its own.

This cake has a lot of “crumb” on top, which makes it very special and delicious.  It also has lots of apples, which makes the cake very moist longer, and keeps this apple crumb coffee cake as fresh and moist a week later as on the first day!

Apple coffee cake:
  • 6 tablespoons butter unsalted, very soft, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour sifted

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 apples medium, cored and chopped
Crumb topping:
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2/3 cup flour , sifted
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted unsalted

  2. In a medium bowl, beat 6 tablespoons of very soft, room temperature butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 2 eggs on high speed for about a minute until fluffy and light in color. Add Greek yogurt and beat some more to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and just a pinch of salt.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in chopped apples.
  5. To make crumb topping: In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 2/3 cup brown sugar, 2/3 cup flour and mix to combine. Add 5 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter and mix until the mixture is very crumbly and has coarse texture. Add more flour if necessary.
