We loved this so much I have made 4 of them in the last couple of months! Change up the fruit with raspberries, blueberries, strawberries etc. for a change of pace. Delicious!
What a scrumptious apple coffee cake! I loved the topping! I used 5 apples; I chopped about 3 of them and folded them them into the batter. The rest I added to the top of batter, as directed. So awesome. I made it yesterday and it is all gone today. Thanks, Bev, for a fantastic recipe.
Very good coffee cake. I added a finely chopped apple to the batter as well - very moist.
