Fall Crumb Coffee Cake
This tender, mildly spiced fall crumb coffee cake is loaded with pears, apples and cranberries and generously topped with buttery crumbs and more cranberries. Perfection!
It doesn’t feel like fall any more, at least here in ND. Everything is covered with fluffy white snow, beautiful bright white snow! Yet, I just stay inside and pretend that it’s still fall, burning pumpkin pie candles, looking at colorful fall photos on IG, and eating this delicious crumb coffee cake packed with fall fruits: apples, pears and cranberries. With a cup of steaming hot tea, of course. Delusional? Maybe…
Ok, enough of weather talk. Look at this CAKE! Ridiculously tender (read: moist), mildly spiced with warm fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, loaded with pears, apples and cranberries! Did I convince you? Not quite yet? How about that buttery sweet crumb topping with cranberries? I wasn’t shy on the crumbs here. It creates nice caramelized crust over the cake. Perfection!
The best part: it’s super simple to make. The ingredient list might look long, but most of them are spices that you probably have in your pantry. If you don’t have a pear, then just use another apple, no big deal. You can make this cake without a stand mixer; I use mine all the time, because I’m lazy. You could do everything by hand, but electric handheld mixer will make the job easier for you. Creaming the butter and sugar well is the key to perfectly tender cake, plus the batter is on slightly thicker side, so electric mixer is highly recommended. As usual, here is the step-by-step process for those of us who love everything visual. 🙂
If desired, you can dust some powdered sugar on top for a festive look. The cake still looks quite gorgeous without it too, with beautiful red cranberries all over.
Those ruby red specks of cranberries are just gorgeous! So festive and perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
