RECIPE: Easy Apple Coffee Cake

18 years ago

I made this for the South American Virtual Dinner over on the Cooking Forum recently and as it was such a fast, simple recipe I thought I'd pass it along.


You could easily whip it up in a few minutes for impromptu coffee hour guests. I will also try it sometime with peaches or pears arranged on top of the batter, or a combi of several fruits. I used yoghurt topping to cut down on calories but whipped cream would be my choice for serving to guests. (Unless they're also trying to lose weight !)

My Notes: I didn't peel the apples and served the pieces with a spoonful of nonfat peach yoghurt.
