Recipe: Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

It's Bus Driver Appreciation week here so I made two of these delicious cakes to send to the bus barn. I doubled the recipe and made 2 cakes. The recipe below is for 1 cake only.

I wish I had a picture of this cake cut so you could see the delicious center filled with apples and streusel. Hmmm, maybe I'll have to make another this week! This is from another one of my favourite Jean Pare "Company's Coming" cookbooks "Baking - Simple to Sensational" page 104.

Here's a link to the "Company's Coming" website.

Tart, apple-flavoured coffee cake with the fragrance of a sugar and cinnamon topping to stir memories and taste buds.
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
1-3/4 cups milk, approximately

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 cup cold butter

3/4 cup butter, softened
1-3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 medium cooking apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
Measure vinegar into 2 cup liquid measure. add milk to equal 1-3/4 cups. Let stand 10 minutes to sour.

Combine first 4 ingredients in small bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coasrse crumbs. Makes 1-3/4 cups topping.
Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until light and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Stir.

Combine next 4 ingredients in medium bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture in 4 additions, alternatiing with milk mixture in 3 additions, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon 1/2 of batter into greased 9x13" pan. Spread evenly.

Arrange apple slices close together in single layer over batter. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup topping over apples. Spoon remaining 1/2 of batter over top. Spread evenly.
Sprinkle with remaining streusel topping. Bake in 350F oven for about 55 minutes until wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cuts into 15 pieces.
