I’m not going to talk your ear off today. Wait… type your eyes off? Regardless, I’m not going to mutilate you in the name of story telling.

Truth be told I’m exhausted because I’ve caught the cold that Bill’s been fighting off for over a week now (shakes fist), I’ve been plowing through a big backlog of blog work I need to get done for the holidays and the cold weather just has me all sleepy.

Storing apple coffee cake

This coffee cake is based on this cranberry coffee cake I made last month, and I can’t pick a favorite. This one is more moist thanks to the addition of apple cider, but that also means it doesn’t last as long in storage.

This is best the same day or the next, but I wouldn’t advise keeping it longer than that.

As far as I’m concerned, that makes it the perfect breakfast for when you know you’ll have a crowd! Christmas morning, brunch, or just a few people with really big appetites.

So take a slice (or two, I won’t tell) and pair it with your morning tea or coffee. If you’re not paleo, whip yourself up a little vanilla glaze and drizzle it on top – it gives it a little somethin’ somethin’.

3 cups of “flours” with only 1 cup of liquid (eggs, coconut oil and almond milk) is not enough to make this moist....it was so dry everything fell apart...couldn’t even eat it. I couldn’t even stir it, because it was so dry, I baked it anyway after finally getting it combined thinking it would bake ok. Nope . Pretty disappointed ☹️ as it looked so moist

I'm sorry that this didn't work out for you! I've made this many times and have never run into the issue that you did, so I'm disappointed for you as well. Did you include the apple cider? (I just noticed you didn't list that in your comment as one of the liquids, so I want to double check)

In steps 2-4 you mention almond flour, coconut sugar, and coconut oil more than once.....I’m not sure when to add what ingredient? Someone help? I’m ready to make it now!

Sorry for the confusion! Looks like when I changed recipe plugins, I lost the headings in the recipe. I've manually updated it now to show that one of those is for the crumb topping, and the other is for the cake itself. Thanks for pointing this out!

Looks delicious! I have so many frozen apples from the fall harvest I'm definitely going to give this a try.
