Apple Crumble Coffee Cake

Apple Crumble Coffee Cake

I wasn’t feeling pie baking last night, but I was feeling a thick and crumbly coffee cake. With the addition of some apple sauce (which I think I’m going to make in the crockpot this weekend) and freshly chopped apples- your typical coffee cake gets a special Fall twist. Not especially pretty (I like to call it rustic) but moist and delicious.

Although this weekend’s weather is throwing a wrench into my Fall weather vibes – I still plan on spending it apple picking and baking.

80 degree temps and all…Apple Crumble Coffee Cake filled with apples and topped with crumble, a perfect way to use up your picking bounty!
