Apple Coffee Cake

I’m a coffee cake lover – I swear I’ve been to Einstein Bagels more for their coffee cake than for their bagels! And when somebody gives you the all-clear to eat cake for breakfast, you just don’t say no to that! 😉 This coffee cake is super simple, but it’s a delicious treat for breakfast, brunch, or dessert!

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    • Hi Sandy. We have only used the apple pie filling in this recipe. Total cooking time for this recipe is 35 minutes. I think regular apple slices would work, but they would need to be sliced very thin so they would cook all the way through and be as soft as apple pie filling apples. Hope this helps and let us know how it all turns out! Wish we had more words of wisdom for you! :)

    Here in south Louisiana, we're longing for our version Autumn/Winter...but we mostly have summer. I was looking for an Autumnal recipe to use up some canned apple pie filling that's been in my pantry for a while. Can't wait to try this out tonight. Love the site, and I always come here for recipes.
    • Hi Lindsay. You are so sweet to take a moment and leave us a nice comment. I love summer, but by end of August I get so excited for everything fall! Here is one of our favorite fall breads. Best of luck with the Apple Coffee Cake. Thanks for coming to our site. Have a great week. Cyd (mom of the six sisters)
