Fresh Apple Coffee Cake - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Fresh Apple Coffee Cake is so easy to make and delicious with a cup of coffee. It’s super easy to make, very versatile and one your family will love. In the Fall season when all the apples are here we love to make this coffee cake, however it’s great year round. Takes no time to throw this one together.

Fresh Apple Coffee Cake Ingredients Needed:





Vanilla extract

All-purpose flour

White granulated sugar

Baking powder



Brown sugar


Walnuts or nuts of your choice


This coffee cake is super versatile, you can use whatever nuts you prefer or leave them out all together. You can also replace the raisin with crasins or leave those out too. The combination of spices with fresh apples makes this coffee cake really moist. It’s best, hot right out of the oven. You could easily add a basic powdered sugar glaze to this too.
