As soon as there is even a hint of fall in the air my tastebuds immediately cry out for apple everything! Sweet, tart, baked, fried, fresh, etc… I like it in all it’s various forms. This Apple Crumb Coffee Cake gives me my apple fix in a lightly sweetened and very moist cake. It is equally tasty at breakfast, as an afternoon snack, or as dessert with it’s tender apple spice flavored apple pieces.
