This moist and delicious coffee cake goes together fast. Great for breakfast or dessert. Save a lot of time by using canned apple pie filling or feel free to use your own homemade canned apples. Try experimenting with other fruit pie fillings and/or different nuts for a change of pace.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 24 to 36 servings


  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • .
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 16 Tablespoons) butter, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 can (20.5 ounces) more fruit apple pie filling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with non-stick foil or grease generously with butter.

Stir together pecans, 2 tablespoons of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice in a small bowl. Set aside.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until well-combined, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla extract.

Beat flour mixture into egg mixture one-third at a time until completely blended. Batter will be very thick. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Using a tablespoon, drop apple pie filling evenly on top of batter, arranging the apple slices to cover the top. Sprinkle pecan mixture on top of apples.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes until center tests done with a toothpick. Cool to room temperature. Lift cake out on the foil and cut for serving.

Yield: 24 to 36 servings, depending on cut size

Easy and delicious, Member collectiblegal

I had some canned apple pie filling that I needed to use up. I wanted to try something different, so I gave this a shot. I had everything on hand, and it was very easy to throw together. I was worried about the large amount of cinnamon, but it came out delicious. My co-workers at the office scarfed it up in a matter of minutes. Many have asked for the recipe. This goes in my keeper file. BTW, mine took 45 minutes to bake, and I'm proud to say it looked just like the picture. Yay!
