Apple Coffee Cake


This recipe comes from my Grandma Clark.  Not sure if she created it, but if I were to guess, she got it from someone else.  My Grandma is a great cook, but she doesn’t usually create her own recipes, she’s got a collection of recipes that puts mine to shame!  Anyway, I make this cake every fall, and since we recently bought a 5lb bag of apples, I decided to put this recipe to use.


  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c. nuts (I always omit)
  • 3 c. apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1.5 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Mix sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla.
  2. Sift dry ingredients and add the first mixture.  It’s a thick cake batter (like thick oatmeal).
  3. Fold in apples and nuts.
  4. Spread into greased and floured 10×13 baking pan, and push/flatten the batter down with your hands. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
  5. Once baked add topping:
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. nuts (I always omit)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Serve with whipped cream or ice cream
