Caramel Apple Coffee Cake
It's the perfect excuse to eat cake for breakfast.
  • 12 tbsp. butter, softened and divided, plus more for greasing pan
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ c. sour cream
  • 1½ c. all-purpose flour, divided
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ c. packed light brown sugar
  • 1 c. peeled, cored and chopped apples (about ½" pieces)
  • ⅓ c. caramel, warmed
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Butter and flour an 8"-x-8” baking dish.
  2. Make Batter: In a large bowl, combine 8 tablespoons butter and sugar. Using a hand mixer, whip until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix until smooth. Then add vanilla and sour cream and mix until evenly incorporated. Add 1 cup flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and mix until just combined. Fold in apples.
  3. Make Streusel Topping: In a medium bowl, combine remaining 4 tablespoons butter with brown sugar and remaining ½ cup flour. Add a pinch of salt, if desired. Stir with a fork or use your hands to create large clumps.
  4. Pour batter into prepared baking dish then top with streusel. Bake until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, 38 to 40 minutes. Drizzle with caramel then let cool for about 10 minutes.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.
