Bakery Style Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake


Let' celebrate Apple season! 

I know just the perfect way.  I'm going to make my mom's Bakery Style Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake.  This coffee cake just screams comfort, and fall.  Just picture taking this coffee cake out of the warm oven.  The smells of cinnamon and apples fill the house.  Serve this as a morning treat, or warm it up in the evening and serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert.  This is the perfect autumn recipe!

I found this recipe scribbled on an old recipe card in my mom's recipe box.  It was quite worn from years of reference.  I can remember mom making this many many times growing up and it brings back memories of raking leaves, and then jumping in them.  Oh!, the smells of fall. 

I sure have a love for apples which I got from my mom.  I love all varieties, but tend to gravitate more to the tart ones.  I can just hear mom saying "Eat an apple, they're good for you!".    So you can imagine my joy when I came across this recipe that brought back so many good memories.

Bakery Style Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake is an easy one to make.  It bakes in one 9 inch cake pan, and the batter is light and crumbly instead of wet and well mixed like other cakes.  This produces a very light textured cake which you are sure to love.  It's topped with a wet crumb topping that gives it great flavor and that coffee cake style.  Filled with apples, this cake is light and delicious!

Enjoy your fall and have a piece of cake!
