Apple Coffee Cake - Recipe

With all the apples that we picked, I had to make something, anything!

Dh popped in Transformers (the movie from last summer and really enjoy) I wanted to watch it but the urge to bake was much stronger.

I looked through the various cookbooks I have sitting on our bookshelf and found one that struck my fancy.

The cookbook is from one of my elementary schools and I have to say the recipes from the book are simply wonderful.

A very quick and easy recipe that makes a wonderful soft textured cake that is not overly sweet.

It is a wonderful treat that just might become a hit in your house.

Which apples did you use for this? I have Macoun and Cortland...

uh.. good question.
I would recommend not using a juicy apple (golden delicious, honey crisp)-any of the other apples should work out just fine.
Those that you mention would be great!
