This tried-and-true recipe is from my grandmother's collection, and it remains my favorite today. This cake tastes wonderfulthe apple filling keeps it moist, and the crispy crunch of its nut mixture makes it seem forever fresh. Apple Cream Coffee Cake is always on my menu for brunch, and good for snacking at any time of day!
To make this tender coffee cake, Bernice Knutson of Soldier, Iowa dips balls of dough into cinnamon and sugar, then places them in a fluted tube pan. "I pour chopped walnuts in the pan first. They add a nice crunch," she notes.
'Festive' is the perfect word used to describe this Christmastime confection from Catherine Emerson of Arlington, Washington. “I am going to try it next with apricots and cinnamon or some of my home canned plums!”
"Cranberries add a delightful tartness to this coffee cake that is a Christmas morning tradition for my family," writes Anne Keenan from Nevada City, California. "I make my own almond paste to use when making this treat." (You can find Anne's recipe by searching for "Homemade Almond Paste" in the Recipe Finder)
This fast version of this holiday classic is made extra speedy by the use of hot roll mix. It eliminates waiting for the dough to rise and the final resting time.Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

Meet the Cook: Back almost 30 years ago, when I was an Indiana farmer's daughter and a 4-H'er, this won me champion honors at the county fair - then a blue ribbon at the state fair! To this day, my husband tells me it's the best thing that I make.
