Apple Coffee Cake

I love cinnamon coffee cake with a nice crumb topping. This cake is sweet, moist and great for a crowd since it doesn’t take very long to make and is easily doubled for a lot of people. You can change this up by adding blueberries instead of apple. Hope you enjoy it!

1/2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature (1/4 cup)

6. Fold in diced apple.

7. Pour into prepared pan.

8. Mix crumb topping until the mixture comes together and is crumbly.

9. Pour on top of batter and spread so all areas have crumb topping.

11. Cool and serve. Make sure to leave out because if you wrap it up too soon the crumb topping will get mushy.
