For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups apples, peeled and diced (e.g., Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)

For the Streusel:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. Make the Streusel:
    • In a small bowl, combine the streusel ingredients—flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Mix until crumbly and set aside.
  3. Prepare the Cake Batter:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon.
  4. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Combine Dry and Wet Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.
  6. Fold in Apples:
    • Gently fold in the diced apples until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  7. Layer and Swirl:
    • Spread half of the batter into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle half of the streusel over the batter. Repeat with the remaining batter and streusel. Use a knife to swirl the streusel into the batter.
  8. Bake to Perfection:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan.
  9. Prepare the Glaze:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled coffee cake.
  10. Slice and Serve:
    • Once the glaze has set, slice the Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake into squares and savor the rich blend of apple sweetness, cinnamon warmth, and tender cake texture.
