Apple Cinnamon Bundt Coffee Cake

Apple Cinnamon Bundt Cake

3 large Macintosh apples, peeled and sliced in thick pieces

2 1/4 cups sugar, divided

1 tablespoon cinnamon

3 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup canola oil

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/2 cup apple juice

6 large eggs, beaten

In a large bowl, combine apple slices, 1/4 cup sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10-cup bundt pan with cooking spray and dust with flour. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine remaining 2 cups of sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Make a well and pour in oil, vanilla, apple juice, and eggs. Stir to just combine the ingredients and the flour mixture is incorporated.

In the bundt pan, put about one-half of the batter and top with the apples making sure they don’t touch the sides of the pan. Top with the remaining batter. Bake for about 1 hour or until the top of the cake is golden brown. A long skewer should come out clean when inserted into the cake.

Cool on a baking rake for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the pan and invert cake on a platter.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line or grease a muffin tin.

For the streusel:

Place flour, brown sugar, and allspice in a small bowl and whisk to

combine. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the mixture

resembles course crumbs. Set aside.

For the muffins:

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder,

allspice and salt.

In a large glass measuring cup or small bowl, whisk the melted butter,

eggs, milk, orange juice, orange zest, and vanilla extract together until

well combined.

Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk until just

combined.

Fold in the cinnamon chips.

Divide the batter evenly among the muffins tins. Top the muffins with 1

tablespoon of streusel.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden and a toothpick

inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.

Transfer the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes before carefully

removing each muffin from its mold.
