Apple Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This coffee cake is apple-packed, moist, and deliciously soft. To be honest, this cake was only made so I could use up some extra sour cream and apples in my fridge. And, guess what? Amazing-ness. If you like this cake, try out some of my other recipes like this One Bowl Apple Walnut Cake or this Traditional Sour Cream Coffee Cake!


For the cake:
1/2 cup (or 1 stick) unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup white table sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sour cream
2 cups apples, peeled and diced into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces

For the topping:
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or, other nuts like almonds or pecans)
2 tablespoons cinnamon (optional: more cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white table sugar (optional: more white table sugar)
2 tablespoons butter


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. For the cake, beat the butter for about 2 minutes until it is smooth and creamy with a hand mixer. Add the sugar and continue beating for another 2 minutes. Add in the eggs and beat thoroughly.
2. Then, mix in the vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

3. Sift and then beat in 1/2 of the flour into the wet ingredients until just combined. Add in 1/2 of the sour cream and mix until incorporated. Then, sift and add in the remaining flour. Mix until combined. Finally, add in the remaining sour cream and beat until just incorporated. Do not over mix!
4. Stir in the diced apples.
5. Now, in a separate bowl, make your topping. Do this by combining the sugars, cinnamon, and walnuts in a bowl. Cut the butter into the mixture so that you have small to medium sized crumbs.
6. Sprinkle the topping over the cake batter. Optional: sprinkle more cinnamon and plain white table sugar on top for additional flavor.
7. Bake the cake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. An inserted toothpick in the middle of the cake should come out clean.

8. Enjoy!
