This is a great recipes. I was wondering if it is possible to make this cake in a bundt pan. How would you put the crumbs on top? would you put the crumbs in the bundt pan then the batter and bake it?

Delightful! I added 2 tsp. of vanilla to wet ingredients and an extra apple. I also doubled the crumble topping, adding 1/3 of it ove the apple layer. Really moist and flavorful. Also, I used mixed nuts and used an extra 1/2 cup there baking for full 60 min. Definitely will be making this recipe again!

I only wish I would've noticed this recipe before I made the Martha Stewart version of a coffee cake. About as blah as Martha's haircut! This sounds so much better!

Loved the texture and flavor of this coffee cake. I'd like to add more apples, but it almost overflowed my 13 x 9-inch baking pan as it is. We love cinnamon, so I sprinkled the apples with cinnamon and sugar and again over the top. I'll definitely make this one again!
