This is apple butter coffee cake makes a perfect afternoon sweet treat!



  • Cake
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups apple butter (I used my homemade slow cooker apple butter)
  • Topping
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • Icing
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Grease two 9″ round pans (my pans have removable bottoms).
  2. Beat the brown sugar, white sugar, and softened butter together until creamy. Add the eggs, beat further. In a separate bowl, mix together the baking powder, salt, and flour. Add the baking powder mixture to the butter mixture and stir until a soft dough forms.
  3. Spread out the dough into your two pans. Pour your apple butter on top of both pans of dough and spread it evenly.
  4. Mix together the topping ingredients. Sprinkle the topping on top of the apple butter.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes.
  6. Let both cakes cool.
  7. Stack one cake on top of the other.
  8. Mix together the icing. You can either drizzle it onto the cake straight from the bowl, or use an icing bag (you can easily make one from a sandwich bag with a corner cut off). Enjoy!
