Apple Raisin Coffee Cake
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.
