This coffee cake is very moist, a few steps in the process of making but well worth the little extra effort.  The kitchen was filled with the aroma of baking apples and cinnamon.  A special treat for a sunday morning.

  1. Hi! I'm having a linky party called A Themed Baker's Sunday where this week's theme is cheesecake! I'd love for you to join and link up! If you don't have a cheesecake recipe, I'd love for you to come back for this next weeks theme, which is tomorrow, and it's cakes and cake pops!

  2. Great minds think alike. I've been planning on making a coffee cake. Yours looks fabulous. And I love that it was made in a tube pan.
