Apple Pecan Coffee Cake Recipe

Publisher Photo
My family really enjoys this sweet, moist coffee cake with its crunchy cinnamon topping. On chilly winter days, a warm slice hits the spot, but it tastes just as good served cold.

"I loved this cake! I didn't use pecans in the topping, and also used butter instead of shortening. Made half the recipe in an 8x8 pan. It turned out so well and the apples made such a yummy layer in the middle."

"This cake was fabulous. A real keeper. I used 1 cup butter instead of 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of shortening. I prefer to use butter instead of shortening in most recipes. The cake is very moist because of the butter milk. If you take the time to make this cake, you will not be disappointed."
