Apricot-Pineapple Coffee Cake

Apricot-Pineapple Coffee Cake

Beautiful, in-season apricots were my inspiration for this coffee cake. I created it for a get-together with friends for our annual porch party. Because it was an evening event, it became a dessert. Great on its own for a morning coffee cake or served in the evening as a dessert topped with vanilla bean ice cream.

  1. Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 7x10-inch baking pan.
  2. Step 2

    Combine apricots, pineapple, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Combine buttermilk, melted butter, egg, and almond extract in another bowl. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients alternately with fruit mixture with a wooden spoon; do not beat. Fold in 1/2 cup almonds. Spread into the prepared baking pan.
  4. Step 4

    Combine flour, butter, brown sugar, coconut, almonds, and cinnamon for topping together until a crumbly mixture is achieved. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake batter.
  5. Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before cutting into it.
