Apple Crumb Coffee Cake
½ cup milk
¼ cup (½ stick) butter or margarine
¼ cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
3–3½ cups all-purpose flour, divided
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 package active dry yeast
2 apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
Cinnamon Crumb Filling
1 cup sugar, ¾ cup all-purpose flour, 2½ teaspoons cinnamon and 6 tablespoons butter. Mix all ingredients with fork until crumbly.
Scald milk; add butter and water. Cool to lukewarm.
Place 2 cups of the flour, sugar, salt and yeast in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and dough hook to mixer. Turn to Speed 2 and mix 15 seconds. Gradually add warm liquid to bowl, mixing 1 minute. Add egg and mix 1 minute longer.
Continuing on Speed 2, add remaining flour ½ cup at a time, until dough clings to hook and cleans sides of bowl. Knead on Speed 2 for 2 minutes longer.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Punch down dough and divide in half. Roll each half to 9-inch circle. Place 1 circle in bottom of greased 9-inch springform pan.
Sprinkle a quarter of Cinnamon Crumb Filling over dough. Arrange half the apple slices on filling; sprinkle another quarter filling over apples. Place remaining dough circle in pan and repeat layers with remaining crumb mixture and apples.
Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Bake at 375°F for 45 to 50 minutes. Remove sides of springform pan immediately and cool on wire rack.
