Best Apple Pecan Coffee Cake - Easy to MakeYummy Apple Pecan Coffee Cake!

Pecans are my most absolute favorite nuts, so this is one of my favorite apple snack recipes.

Make this recipe in two 9" round cake pans, or it should work well made in one 9" x 13" baking dish. Yummy!



3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 medium size eggs
1 3/4 cups buttermilk or 1 3/4 milk including 1 tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice
2 medium size apples, peeled and thinly sliced


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3 tbsp. butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (*see tip below)



In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and the salt.

In a large size bowl, using an electric hand mixer, cream the shortening and the butter until well combined.

Gradually add the sugar, beating until mixture is light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time.

Fold in the flour mixture, alternating with the buttermilk.

Transfer half of the cake batter into two greased (I use non-stick cooking spray), 9" round cake pans or one 9 " x 13" baking dish.

Arrange the sliced apples over the cake batter.

Top with remaining half of batter.


Combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut in the butter, and then mix in the chopped pecans.

Sprinkle topping over the cake batter. If you are using 2 round cake pans you will not need to use all of the streusel topping.

Bake at 350° F for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve cake plain, or with a dollop of whipped cream, whipped dessert topping or Greek yogurt.

Each cake makes about 6 - 8 servings of scrumptious apple pecan coffee cake.

*Baking Tip

If you only have whole pecans on hand, or pecan halves, here is a simple tip to chop the nuts without using a blender.

Simply place the pecans inside a plastic bag, or between a folded piece of waxed paper, and roll over the nuts using a pastry rolling pin. Works great! (see photo below)
