I'm not entirely certain how coffee cake came about, but I'm convinced it was invented as the solution to the age-old dilemma of 'is eating cake for breakfast ever acceptable.' Truly in my world, if anyone ever tells you cake isn't acceptable at any time of day, you just walk away because you don't need that kind of negativity in your life. Now that apple season is in full swing, what better way to have your cake and eat it to, than with this apple-cinnamon coffee cake? It's perfect for weekend brunch, after-dinner coffee, or really anytime - in fact, I recently took this to an IFC board meeting and it was very much enjoyed.
If you have leftovers, cover the pan with foil or plastic wrap and store on the counter. Leftovers can also be tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for several months.
