Apple Spiced Sour Cream Coffee Cake for R’ock-tober #baketogether

October 21, 2011

Apple Spiced Sour Cream Cake


I am so excited to be participating in my very first “Baketogether” with Abby Dodge for the very fun month of October.   We are taking her classic coffee cake recipe and changing it up.   I can’t wait to see all the variations that will be posted up with links in the comments section of her blog.  I have chosen to go with the season and used grated apples and boiled cider syrup to change mine up a bit.   It came out so moist and delectable.  As soon as I knew I had a good photograph, I completely lost control and scoffed it before I could even post this up.  As I sit here with my full belly, I still wish I could have enjoyed a piece with my lovely virtual friends today.  I dare not eat another slice when my family comes home!




  1. Sounds perfect Wendy; sure wish you and a slice were sitting here with me and my cup of coffee. I have to make mine this weekend and from the looks of my counter, something appleish will be happening here too!
