Apple Buttermilk Coffee CakeI know, I know… I just shared another apple cake recipe like a month ago. But this one is different, I swear! Or, they might be pretty similar, but whatever. I’m really into fall apples and cake; thus there have been some tasty apple cakes around here and I tend to want to share them. I mean, I know I’m not the only one out there with apples just begging to be baked every weekend this fall. Figured I’d share my fun ways to use them.

This came out a bit less crumbly then a typical coffee cake (probably due to the fact that there was no butter or oil). But the nuts and spices create a flavorful cake. And the apples and sugar mixture on top make it rich and a bit decadent. This was pretty stellar hot out of the oven – it was my indulgent Saturday breakfast this weekend. It reheats well too.

2 eggs
½ c greek yogurt
1/3 c packed brown sugar

2 Tbs butter, melted

Pre-heat oven to 375ᵒ and spray a 9” cast iron skillet with baking spray.

Whisk the eggs, yogurt and brown sugar, until well combine and fluffy. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts and mix thoroughly. Add the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda, mix until combined. Add the buttermilk and mix until smooth.

Pour the batter into the prepared skillet. Top with the sliced apples and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over everything.
