For the Streusel Topping:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch springform pan or a regular cake pan.
  • Apple Pie Filling:
    • In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
    • Add the diced apples, sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
    • Cook the apple mixture for about 5 minutes until the apples soften slightly.
    • Sprinkle the tablespoon of flour over the apple mixture and stir well. Cook for another 2 minutes until the filling thickens slightly.
    • Remove the saucepan from the heat and set the apple pie filling aside to cool.
  • Coffee Cake:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
    • In another bowl, cream together the softened butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
    • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then add the vanilla extract.
    • Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream or yogurt. Start and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined after each addition.

  • Streusel Topping:
    • In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, chilled butter cubes, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
    • Use your fingers or a fork to blend the ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Assembling the Cake:
    • Spread half of the coffee cake batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
    • Add the cooled apple pie filling on top, spreading it evenly over the batter.
    • Spoon the remaining coffee cake batter over the apple pie filling, smoothing the top again.
    • Sprinkle the streusel topping over the cake batter.
  • Baking:
    • Bake the coffee cake in the preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    • Once done, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.

  • Serving:
    • Carefully remove the coffee cake from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • Slice and serve the delicious coffee cake stuffed with apple pie.
