Apricot-Pineapple Coffee Cake

Beautiful, in-season apricots were my inspiration for this coffee cake. I created it for a get-together with friends for our annual porch party. Because it was an evening event, it became a dessert. Great on its own for a morning coffee cake or served in the evening as a dessert topped with vanilla bean ice cream.

1 7x10-inch cake



  • 1 cup chopped fresh apricots

  • ½ cup crushed pineapple

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup buttermilk

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • ½ cup sliced almonds


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut

  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 7x10-inch baking pan.

  2. Combine apricots, pineapple, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Combine buttermilk, melted butter, egg, and almond extract in another bowl. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients alternately with fruit mixture with a wooden spoon; do not beat. Fold in 1/2 cup almonds. Spread into the prepared baking pan.

  4. Combine flour, butter, brown sugar, coconut, almonds, and cinnamon for topping together until a crumbly mixture is achieved. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake batter.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before cutting into it.
