What's Cooking Wednesday: Apple Coffee Cake

We had apples that needed to be used. We had a container of sour cream about to expire. I love coffee cake. Heck, I love cake. Who doesn't?! Therefore, with some playing around, this beauty came to fruition and I. Am. In. LOVE. 


For cake
3 apples, peeled, cored, and diced smaaaaaall
1 3/4 cup flour
1 stick of butter softened or room temp (you know it's gonna be good!) 
1 cup sugar 
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

For topping and swirl
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoon brown sugar 
1/2 cup nuts (I had pecans and almonds so used both mixed)
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Preheat over to 350 (my oven is moody so I did 375 but a normal oven would be 350) 

Grease a cake pan. I used a springform pan so it would be easy to remove, I was worried about the swirl being carmelized and sticking too much. 

In a small bowl, combine all swirl ingredients and set aside. 

In a standing mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar together. 

Once mixed, add in 2 eggs and vanilla then mix more. 

In another bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and flour together. 

Pour half the flour mixture into the mixer bowl and combine. Then add the sour cream to combine. Then add the remainder of the flour mixture until fully combined. It will be a thick batter! 

Fold in the apples gently. 

Pour and spread half the batter into the greased cake pan. Sprinkle the swirl/topping mixture all over the batter. Take a knife and gently make swirls or zig zags lines through the batter to give it some mixing. 

Pour remainder of batter over the top and spread evenly. Tap the cake pan on the counter to get the bubbles out and to evenly distribute the batter (it'll be a bit thick). Sprinkle evenly the remainder of the swirl/topping mixture and again make swirls or zig zags to give it some mixing into the cake and texture. 

Bake for 60-70 minutes, depending on your oven. Start checking it at 45 minutes to determine doneness. It will rise a lot so be sure you have room in your oven for it to rise!

Please let me know if you decide to bake this deliciousness =)
