cooking cake with Sam

Yesterday I had the pleasure of making an 'Apple Crumble Coffee Cake' with Sam! She has been visiting from Broken Hill and staying with us for the week. It was such a treat to be able to cook with her (she is the same friend that my original blog was with). She loves making cakes, so it was fun for her to bring this recipe along and do it my kitchen.

Coffee cake is a very american thing to make and it does not mean that there is 'coffee' in the cake! It just suggests that it is a nice cake to eat with a cup of coffee. Therefore it is very common to make a 'coffee cake' for a brunch or morning tea type occasion. This coffee was delicious and along with the layer of crumble through the middle of the cake you also put an apple. It was very moist and delicious, we served it with icecream and a warm apple compote for dessert. But I also had it for breakfast this morning with a cup of coffee :)
Thanks Sam for coming to visit and adding another recipe to my list!
