Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake |

I am a sucker for coffee cakes. And, anything with apples in it. Hence, this gorgeous Apple Cinnamon Coffee cake recipe.

I am obsessed with Pinterest! In the car during long rides (no, I am not driving….), on the Ipad while watching TV (obviously I am not watching….), and anytime I have some free downtime. I find all kinds of ideas for decorating, crafts, recipes, table settings, vacations, wonders of the world, you name it.

That’s where I found this great Apple Cinnamon Coffee cake recipe from

This Labor Day weekend its quite a bit cooler than the summer’s been. There is a touch of Fall in the air, so this coffee cake featuring apples, is perfect.

Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake | afoodieaffair.comIt’s super easy to make. Make sure you make in the 8″ springform pan though. If it were made in a regular cake pan, a good amount of the crumbs would come off the cake by the time you flipped it. The springform is the way to go.

Mine took a little longer to cook than the recipe called for, but that’s not unusual for my oven for some reason, so I just cooked until the blade of a knife came out clean.

This cake is perfect for taking anywhere, and everyone will be astonished it looks so good!
