Emeril's Coffee Cake
Apple Coffee Cake With Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze
Coffee cake is a great way to impress your guests after dinner. Emeril Lagasse shared his recipe for Apple Coffee Cake With Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze with "Good Morning America."
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Lightly grease a 13-by-9-inch glass baking dish with two teaspoons of the butter.
In a large bowl, cream together the remaining stick of butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after the addition of each. In a separate bowl or on a piece of parchment, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream and vanilla. Fold in the apples. Pour into the prepared baking dish, spreading out to the edges.
To make the topping, in a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter, and mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the topping over the cake and bake until golden brown and set, 40 to 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.
To make the glaze, in a bowl, combine the sugar, vanilla and water, and mix until smooth. Drizzle the cake with the glaze and let harden slightly. Serve warm.
Yield: 12 servings
