Dutch Apple Coffee Cake

This Dutch Apple Coffee Cake is one of my favorite Fall cakes to make. It’s easy, reminds me easily of Fall, and goes great with my morning coffee.

When I was planning my recipes for Apple Week, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make at all. Our sponsors were all so generous and I wanted to be sure and use sponsor products as frequently as I could.

When Swiss Diamond offered to send me this awesome Cast Iron Shallow Casserole, I knew that I was going to make this cake and I knew that this beautiful dish was what I would use for this cake.

Now this dish is HUGE. It hold’s SO much food. We have used it for several dinners, it works great for any meal we tried. But I was excited to use it for This Dutch Apple Coffee cake and see how it did.

First thing was first, I had to double the recipe to ensure that it fit. But I’m SO glad I did. It baked up beautifully, was super moist, soft and full of apple and cinnamon flavor.

Second, I had to decide whether I wanted to cover the cake with the casserole lid or not. In the long run, I decided to, since that was the point of using the dish. It was perfect!

I tried to remember where we got the recipe for this Dutch Apple Coffee Cake. It’s been in a box my grandmother gave me, but written in my mother’s handwriting.

A lot of my mother’s recipes came from those school/church cookbooks that were popular back in the 70’s and 80’s. Sure enough, I found the original recipe in a cookbook I still have from elementary school.

Over the years I have tweaked it a bit, but it’s still the same delicious apple flavor, same great spiced goodness and just a great way to enjoy a Fall dessert.

That looks so good! And now I am wondering why I never think to make in my dutch ovens. I am really missing out!
