apple peanut butter chip coffee cake

We have a lot of apples from apple picking, but I was looking to make something other than apple crisp. I based this cake off of this recipe, but made a number of changes. The original recipe calls these “brownies,” but it’s much more like a coffee cake.


  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 medium apples (maybe slightly less)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (this comes out really strong! if you’re not a huge fan of cinnamon, you could reduce)
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 12oz bag of peanut butter chips (you could substitute walnuts)


>>Preheat oven to 350

>>Grease a 9×13″ pan

1) Peel the apples. Cut the apples into small chunks. My pieces were about 1/2″x1/2″, but I don’t think it’s too important.

2) Beat together the melted butter, egg, and sugar.

3) Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat until smooth.

4) Stir in the peanut butter chips and the apples.

5) Spread batter evenly over the pan and bake for approximately 35 minutes.

Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream.
