This recipe came form my mom, who is an excellent cook. It always gets rave reviews. Although fairly simple to make, when you finish you'll feel a sense of accomplishment because it tastes delicious and looks so impressive.
For a fun sweet treat that's certain to satisfy, try this recipe. Drizzled with icing, each finger-licking piece has a yummy surprise filling of apples and pecans. It's well worth the bit of extra effort.

“For baking cobblers and coffee cakes like this easy recipe, I love to have blueberries around all year long," notes Ruth Gruchow of Yorba Linda, California. "They’re easy to freeze and last about a year, so I buy them in season, put 2 cups in quart-size freezer bags and date each bag.”
This moist golden morning treat quickly became my husband's favorite. And because it calls for a boxed blueberry muffin mix and canned pineapple, I never have a problem finding the time to make it for him. Plus, it looks pretty enough to serve company.
With their decorative cinnamon swirls, these lovely braids taste as good as they look! And their aroma while baking will make your mouth water. For a holiday touch, you could decorate the drizzle of icing with pecans and candied cherries. —Vick Holloway, Joelton, Tennessee
I’ve learned to keep copies of the recipe on hand when I serve this moist and satisfying coffee cake. It has a nice level of coconut flavor from the pudding mix. —Beth Tropeano, Charlotte, North Carolina
“I found this recipe in a newspaper and make it often,” says Mary Tallman of Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin. “I like to bake this coffee cake when unexpected company stops in and I need something speedy to go with a cup of coffee.”
Jackie Heyer from Cushing, Iowa relies on a cake mix to stir up this moist streusel-topped dessert that pairs tart rhubarb with sweet strawberries. "I prefer it without the frosting so that it doesn't get too sweet," she notes.
