Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

I’m thrilled to have Kami from No Diets Allowed with us today… she’s brought a delicious recipe plus an announcement about the upcoming Everything Food Conference!

I’ll turn it over to her…

It’s an honor to contribute for Ruthie! I’m amazed at her endless talent and ability and beyond grateful for the opportunity to share this light, fluffy, and crumbly apple coffee cake. I finally hid the coffee cake out of sight since I kept breaking off little pieces every few minutes until I engulfed over half of the dish on my own. You’ve been warned.

My mom has some pretty bountiful apple trees, and I benefit greatly. She brings me large boxes of apples freshly picked from her tree, and I go crazy in the kitchen. Those juicy, crunchy apples are thrown into recipes like my Pumpkin Apple Bread and this very tasty coffee cake.

Since I can’t be the only mom who continues to sneak candy from my kid’s Halloween collection, I’m going to keep the sugar to a minimum here. Actually, I kinda pride myself on sneaking health into recipes while keeping them tasty. This is no exception. Instead of butter, try coconut oil. Instead of sugar, throw in some honey and applesauce. Come check out more sneaky nutritious recipes.

I’ve been cooking up lots of things recently including a food blogger conference called Everything Food Conference. It is going to be the most engaging, rewarding, fun, and delicious food bloggers conference ever! We’re going to ensure your minds and stomachs are stuff, brand/blogger relationships built, and you leave feeling pumped and ready to succeed. With this amazing lineup of popular bloggers, it’s going to be nonstop engagement, fun, and partying.

It will be hosted in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah on May 19-21, 2016. We have several ticket options including live streaming of the full conference. Our tickets are selling quickly and if you’re unable to actually attend, you can still watch the conference from your own home! We wouldn’t want you to miss out entirely.

Since you’re all amazing, code foodbloggerfriends will give you 10% off until November 30th. Come check out the conference and register to come!


Okay, back to the crumbly goodness. It’s time to grab a fork and napkin… or just grab the whole pan. It will end up saving you time since you’ll keep going back for seconds. Enjoy, my friends!
