Pear Crumb Coffee Cake
Remember a while back I canned a whole bunch of pear sauce? Well, I still had a few jars hanging out in my pantry, begging to be useful. Instead of my usual pancake topping, I decided to make a coffee cake with it. Though it turned out pretty fabulous, it was lacking some texture. Like something crunchy, chewy and crumbly. Well, I didn’t have to think too hard. Crumb topping it is! And who doesn’t love that??
Buttery, crumbly mixture of oats, almonds and brown sugar with bursts of fresh pears. DELICIOUS!
The best part, it’s quite simple to throw this cake together too! For the crumb topping, I like to use softened butter. It’s easier to work it into the dry ingredients. Make sure to mix everything well, so that there is no dry ingredients left.
The secret to tender and moist coffee cake is to beat the butter and sugar until nice and fluffy. Take your time and beat it good.
Tall and tender, this spiced pear coffee cake topped with nutty, crunchy crumb topping is a delicious start to fall baking!
