This coffee cake is always a hit with my family. I find it especially delicious because it's not too sweet. Of all the coffee cakes I've tried, it remains our family favorite.

"I like to try recipes that no one has rated yet and so when I had some extra apples searched and this one came up. I think it would be better with a litte cinnamon sugar swirled throughout. Not a whole lot of flavor in the cake part."
