|Coffee cakes are typically flavored with cinnamon, nuts, and fruits. These cakes sometimes have a crumbly or crumb topping called streusel and/or a light glaze drizzle. They do not typically include coffee as an ingredient, but are so-called because they are often served as an accompaniment to coffee. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
Things You'll Need:
2 cups of sugar
1/2 tbsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp Allspice (spice)
1/4 tsp Ground clove
2 cups grated apple
1/2 cups of golden raisins
1/2 cup of crushed walnuts
2 cups of self rising flour1- 9 X 13 inch baking pan
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Make sure that your oven's rack is placed in the center.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla extract until well blended. You can use a hand mixer, or you can effectively stir this by hand. If by hand, in a separate smaller bowl, mix eggs together thoroughly and then add to the rest of the above list.
Add grated apples, raisins, nuts, and spices to the batter mix and again, mix with your blended well. You want all the ingredients well incorporated into the batter. Your batter should be thick.
Pour into your pan 9 X 13 inch pan and bake for 35 minutes. Tooth pick inserted in the center that comes out clean is the indicator that it is cooked. If not, continue checking at 5 minute intervals using a fresh toothpick every time. This prevents it from burning.
Tip: This cake tastes wonderful when served warm with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream on top, try it, you'll love it.
