I made this the night before, set it on a rack to cool, then brought it to work in the morning. It was very popular, moist and dense, rich and not too sweet - JUST right! I think next time I will try to eat it after it is just cool enough to cut but still a little warmer - has anyone tried it with ice cream?

The cake was not as moist as I tought it would be. But it was good with coffee.

Rich, moist and buttery! The apple-cinnamon topping is the crowning glory to this wonderful coffeecake. I made as directed using about 5 cups of apples on top and increasing the cinnamon and sugar amounts slightly. I will definitely remember to make this one again, Kitten! Thank you : )
