ONE-BOWL APPLE STREUSEL COFFEE CAKE

INGREDIENTS
For the Cake:
  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1/2 cup whole plain Greek yogurt
  4. 1/2 cup salted butter
  5. 1/4 cup whole milk
  6. 2 large eggs
  7. 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  8. 1 tsp baking powder
  9. 1 tsp baking soda
  10. 1 tsp vanilla
  11. 1/4 tsp table salt
  12. 3 large granny smith apples, peeled and diced small

Topping:
  1. 1 cup chopped pecans
  2. 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  3. 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  4. 1/4 cup salted cold butter, cut into cubes and chilled
  5. 3 tsp ground cinnamon

Optional Drizzle:
  1. 1/2 cup powder sugar
  2. 1 TB milk (more or less, depending on thickness desired)

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Make the Topping ahead of time: Combine all topping ingredients in a bowl. Use fingers to work mixture into the texture of clumpy wet sand. Cover and keep chilled.
  • Butter a 13×9 in baking pan and preheat oven to 350F, with rack on lower middle position.
  • Combine all cake ingredients except apples in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the paddle attachment, mix at medium speed, stopping to scrape a few times, just until mixture is combined. Don’t over mix. Use a rubber spatula to fold in apples. Batter will be thick. Spread batter into prepared baking pan, evening out the top and corners. Sprinkle topping over the batter evenly.
