Triple Apple Spiced Brown Sugar Glazed Coffee Cake

Not your regular ionic apple spiced coffee cake. But rather a Triple Apple Spiced Brown Sugar Glazed Coffee Cake.

Triple, as it contains not only chunks of sweet and tangy apples, but also apple cider and applesauce (Recipe here for: Homemade Cinnamon Brown Sugar Applesauce).

The cake includes both cinnamon and nutmeg. And not to forget a brown sugar glaze that puts it over the top.

All of this making it a perfect Fall apple spice coffee cake dessert.

Cook’s Notes

Use firm, sweet apples for the best texture in this cake. You can use a combination of Honey crisp, gala or fuji apples. For a more tart Apple Spice Cake, include a Granny Smith Apple.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease with butter a 9×13 baking pan, set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In a larger bowl, stir together, oil, sugar, and brown sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Make sure to mix well after each addition. Add applesauce and apple cider.

Add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture and fold together until just combined. Gently add the diced apples into the batter, making sure they are evenly distributed.

Spread the cake batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven quickly and place aluminum foil over the cake.

Return to the oven and continue baking 20-25 more or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

NOTE: Without aluminum foil, the cake will brown on the top, making it difficult for the brown sugar glaze to penetrate the cake.

While the cake is cooling, prepare the brown sugar glaze. Combine the butter, brown sugar, and heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Allow the butter to melt, whisking constantly, until it comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and cook for 1 minute longer. Allow the glaze to cool.

Using a toothpick or fork, poke holes throughout the cake. Drizzle the brown sugar glaze over the top, allowing it to soak into the cake and set for a least 10 minutes.

Serve with vanilla bean ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
