Apple Cider Coffee Cake

This delicious apple cider coffee cake is made with bits of apple and a cozy blend of fall spices. Topped with a simple apple cider glaze, this easy-to-make cake will fill your house with the aroma of apples and spices as it bakes.

First make the crumble topping.  In a medium sized bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

Add butter and use a pastry cutter or forks to incorporate the butter into flour mixture. Mix until crumbs form and there are no dry pieces of flour mixture left.

To make the cake, whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and salt together in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, oil, and sour cream. Mix until everything is incorporated.

Add half the dry ingredients into the large bowl, and mix until almost combined. Add ¼ cup + 2 teaspoons of apple cider and mix until combined. Add remaining dry ingredients and chopped apple. Mix until just combined.

Transfer batter to a 9" round or square baking pan that has been greased and the bottom lined with parchment paper.

Scatter crumb topping evenly over the top of the cake batter. Bake for 43-48 minutes at 350°F, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs on it.

In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of apple cider. Mix until incorporated. Add more apple cider if it's too thick. The glaze should be pourable, but not too runny.

Pour or pipe glaze on top of cooled to room temperature cake.
