Apple Berry Coffee Cake

Prep Time: 14 min Cooking Time: 40 min

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease a 9-inch round cake pan or springform pan. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and lemon zest.
  4. With a pastry blender, two knives or your fingers, blend in ½ cup butter until crumbly.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and cream. Add to flour mixture and mix just enough to incorporate; do not overmix.
  6. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the cake pan. Place the blueberries, raspberries and diced apples on top of the dough and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Place the remaining 2 tablespoons butter pieces over the fruit.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Remove cake from the pan, slice it and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

The texture of this Apple Berry Coffee Cake reminds me of the texture of a pound cake. It’s a little dense which makes it perfect for supporting the fruit.

I bake my Apple Berry Coffee Cake in a 9-inch springform pan. This type of pan allows me to release the sides so that they can be removed from the base.
