Apple Yeast Coffee Cake

 **This is a sponsored post. I received products to use in recipes for this event. All opinions are my own.**

Slowly, but surely, I am conquering my fear of yeast! I've had a copy of this recipe in my to-try binder for what seems like forever.   When I was planning my #AppleWeek out, I decided it was time to just do it.   I chose a relatively warm, no-plans-to-go-anywhere Saturday, and hoped for the best.

The first rise went great, and I was cautiously optimistic.   So did the second, and I was dancing around the kitchen.  It baked up beautifully too.  Success! We all loved it, and I definitely will make it again using different pie filling flavors.

Apple Yeast Coffee Cake
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package active dry yeast (1/4oz)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 stick butter, cubed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 can apple pie filling, 21 oz
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Rodelle Vanilla Extract
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons half and half
In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the water, milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Beat in eggs until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 40 minutes. Stir dough down and spoon two-thirds into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Top with pie filling. Drop remaining dough by tablespoonfuls over pie filling. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Place pan on a wire rack. Combine the confectioners' sugar, extract and enough half and half to achieve a drizzling consistency; drizzle over warm coffee cake. 
Yield: 12 servings.

  1. Apple is one of my favorite fillings! This yeast coffee cake looks so yummy! I used to be afraid of yeast too! It does get easier.

  2. That looks positively delicious! Can't wait to try it.

  3. Oh my YUM....Jolene, I love the idea of a yeast coffee cake.

  4. I was hesitant to work with yeast too until a few years ago. Now I have a sourdough starter and buy yeast in the pound packages rather than the packets :-) What can I say? I like to knead! This looks fabulous and I can't wait to try it!
