On a cool fall day, this coffee cake is perfect for breakfast, afternoon coffee or dessert.

  • 2 medium apples, peeled and thinly sliced



Topping:



  • ⅓ c. chopped walnuts
  • ⅓ c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon



Preheat oven to 350 and spray an 11 x 7 baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until crumbly. Add eggs and mix well. Combine flour with baking soda and add alternately with sour cream.
Carefully spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. (batter will be sticky). Top with sliced apples, then remaining batter.
In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients. Sprinkle over batter. Bake 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

  2. BroncoMom,
    Thank you for leaving a comment! I am glad you have liked the recipes so far! I hope you like this one too. It was not overly sweet, so I served it with some vanilla ice-cream and a little caramel sauce for dessert. It would be fine for breakfast just like it is.
