A few days ago I needed a treat for an event in a friends house and I had no time. Apple cake is always a great idea during winter time and so I had a look what I had and what is flowing in the Internet.
I finished up on A Girl Worth Saving. The photo for her apple coffee cake is so intriguing that I would have liked just to take the piece of cake right from my desktop. But the screen hold me back..
So I looked up my ingredients in the pantry and having all I started immediately.
I made a few modifications to personalize the cake to my own taste. The look of the cake is even very different. But the taste is super yummy. I like a lot the crusty topping. And some paleo friendly icing sugar on the top makes it even festive.
OK, I will not let you wait too long for the recipe, here it is. And enjoy with friends or guests!
Add the wet ingredients and stir until well combined.
Spread the batter in a pan 8x8 inch/20x20 cm and put aside.
Prepare the topping in a smaller bowl just mixing all the ingredients.
Sprinkle the topping on the cake batter.
Bake for 25 minutes. A tooth-stick should come out clean.
The sprinkled topping batter closes during the baking process and makes a perfect coat on the cake.
In the original recipe the baking time was only 15-20 minutes and 160°C, in my oven the cake needed 175°C and 25 minutes. Make the tooth-stick prove already after 15/20 minutes, if it's ready take the cake out. Don't let it dry out too much.
A light hint of icing sugar (paleo-friendly) on the top gives the cake a delicate look.
