Apples are already in season, and it is time to try some apple baking. This apple coffee cake will have you up in the morning and ready for fall in no time. The combination of comforting apple and warming cinnamon is perfect for chilly mornings or stormy evenings. And with the low sugar and oil content combined with fiber from the oats and apples, you will not feel guilty about indulging in cake for breakfast.
Even though the batter is leavened with yeast to avoid chemical leaveners, this cake is still quick to make. It does not need to rise before baking, as it rises sufficiently in the oven, so the hardest part is to remember to heat the liquid for the batter. Also, since this is a yeasted batter, it is considerably thicker than baking-powder batters, like a mix between a batter and a dough, but that should be no problem.
So pick your apples and treat yourself to some fall apple cake. And don't forget the vanilla sauce -- it is definitely a dreamy addition!
Now, as the question of the day, what is your favorite way to eat apples?
