Super easy to make, this buttery, soft and moist apple cake includes layers of chopped apples and a sweet and yummy streusel topping! Perfect with a cup of java!

I do not even know how to start describing this apple cake. It is buttery with apples and topped with a cinnamon streusel. The layers of the cinnamon streusel topping as well as apples would be the best part, if you ask me. Better than any frosting! I pick up the apples and the topping before eating the rest of the cake. Like a picky eater!
The apples make this cake amazing moist. They don't just discharge moisture during baking but their moisture leaves the cake remain fresh for days after the cake is baked (that if the cake lasts that long!)

If I need to pick 1 fruit to make desserts with year round, it would be a tie between berries and apples. I love them both equally to bake with or to consume fresh. This apple cake makes really but I could enjoy a slice, because winter hasn't arrived in my area.
Plus, as it's really simple to create, I see no reason you shouldn't be making it for you and your family to enjoy while sipping a cup of cocoa, tea or coffee. You may have a bit in the day or in the morning. If you've got two slices do not worry, I won't tell anyone!
Like I said previously, the cake is super simple to make.
You begin with the cinnamon streusel topping -- only combine either in a bowl of a food processor cold butter, sugar, cinnamon and self rising flour. I understand self rising flour is one of these ingredients you do not use but I have tried this cake recipe using flour and baking powder as I expected, but the results weren't as delicious.
For the cake you will also need self rising flour, soft butter, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, milk and thinly sliced apples. You can use although I used granny smith apples. Roma apples and honey crisp are among my favorites.
The cake batter is thick, so you will need a spoon or a spatula to organize it into a 9″ round cake pan. One the top smooths out, arrange the apple slices. Complete the cake with the streusel. Bear in mind that the cake requires little over an hour in a couple of hours and the oven to cool before you can slice it! It is usually made by me and have a slice with my morning cup of java! After all that is called coffee cake, right?
