Who doesn't like a nice piece of coffee cake for breakfast, or anytime, for that matter? Especially for overnight company... it's just a real treat. So, instead of running to the grocery store and buying donuts or coffee cake, just make this one up in no time. Your guests and family will love you even more for it. Mine did!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

In the Test Kitchen, we love coffee cake and this is a super easy recipe. The cake starts with a cake mix but adding a little bit of cinnamon pumps up the flavor. Apple pie filling is dolloped onto the batter. As the dense cake bakes, it surrounds the apple filling. So when you cut a slice, the apples are a surprise. Drizzled on top is a glaze that adds just the right amount of sweetness.
