Family Favorite Apricot Prune Coffee Cake!

It’s seriously the best!

Apricot prune coffee cake. Don’t let the name fool you! Its truly my favorite. This cake is so moist with the perfect crumb. Did I mention those ooey gooey brown sugary bits? I could hardly wait for this one to bake let alone cool down.

This tried and true recipe comes from my wonderful mother in law and as you have seen; she really does have the best recipes. I’ve had a number of people try it and they all agree it truly is delicious.

This apricot prune coffee cake is my absolute favorite and seriously the best coffee cake I have ever had hands down. Ever! I can’t say enough about it. The deep flavor of the prunes balance the tartness of the apricot perfectly. Don’t even get me started on the brown sugar cinnamon bits. So Good.

That’s the stuff right there Yum!

Dried apricots and prunes are used for this recipe. You can purchase them at any grocery store.
