Cream Cheese Apple Coffee Cake

A moist apple coffee cake layered with luscious cream cheese and a crumbly streusel!

I was very wary when titling this post. Last time I posted a coffee cake, I got multiple commenters and emailers saying, "Excuse me, but where is the coffee in this coffee cake recipe? I have read it through multiple times and I just cannot find the coffee. Please help!"

No, you are reading that correctly, folks. This coffee cake, like pretty much all coffee cakes I've ever had, has absolutely no coffee in the recipe! Shocking, I know. But I do hope you will drink a cup or several of coffee while you are devouring it.  

Really though, I shouldn't make fun of you wonderful commenters.

But while I'm already on a roll, can we just talk about the people who ask if "this chocolate chip cookie recipe will still turn out the same if we leave out the chocolate chips" (to whom I must answer, "What do you live for?"). Or how about the people who ask in earnest if cupcakes are meant to be served as a side dish or dessert?

I'm not even joking when I say, these kind of comments are what make blogging worth it. 

Enjoy your coffee cake. Good day.

  1. That's funny. :)

    But even without coffee, this looks delicious!!

  2. Sooo....wheres the coffee in this?
    Only kidding ;) looks super delish!

  3. Coffee cake is called that because it is meant to have with the coffee. Wala, coffee cake! By the way, great recipe.

  4. Just made this and it is absolutely delicious! Love the recipe and will be making it again! YUM YUM

  5. Wanna try this recipe but what are the best apples to use

  7. This is incredible, and it's not super hard to make! I made it for a bake sale and it was the first thing to sell quickly. Thank you for posting this delicious recipe ❤️

  8. This is an amazing coffee cake. I've made this several times and get so many compliments and requests for the recipe. I added chopped pecans to the streusel for a different flavor....loved it! THANK YOU!

  9. Do you think it would work to bake this in a Bundt cake pan? If so, do you know how you would adjust the cooking time?

    1. I would be a little nervous about a bundt pan that it wouldn't pop out of the pan well, but you could try! I think the bake time would be similar but I would go by a toothpick test!

  10. I made this gluten free- subsituted a mixture of coconut flour and all purpose gluten free flour for the flour. The only thing I would change is to add more cream cheese mixture in the middle, that layer seemed a little thin. It could be that it was a dryer cake b/c of the coconut flour, the next time I will try it with almond flour. Thanks for the recipe!
