I can NOT believe it is really almost time for Spring Break!?!
Really, where the heck has the time gone? I know I haven’t posted a recipe in a while (please still love me?), but I really just don’t even have time to even sleep anymore. This semester has been really kicking my booty.
18 credit hours is no joke. Full time student to the max, and then sorority obligations, and then work, it’s a whole heck of a lot of stuff going on.
I’ve discovered the art of working out while studying. Weirdly, it’s much more effective than studying in the library with my laptop because I’m stuck on the machine when I’m working out and have nothing else to focus my attention on than the notes in front of me. And people say multi-tasking is ineffective..
Anywho, this here is a recipe for a super easy but delicious apple coffee cake. Seriously so so good and the perfect treat for breakfast! Hope you all enjoy :)
Apple Streusel Coffee Cake
1 (15 oz) can apple pie filling
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
BROWN SUGAR MIXTURE:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups milk (I used skim)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350˚F and spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray.
- In a small bowl combine the apple pie filling and ground cinnamon; set aside. In another small bowl, combine the brown sugar and chopped nuts; set aside.
- In a large bowl combine the flours, sugar, milk, butter, baking powder, salt, and eggs using a mixer until just barely combined.
- Pour half of the batter into prepared pan. Spread the apple filling mixture evenly over the batter. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture evenly over the pie filling.
- Pour remaining batter over brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar mixture over top of cake.
- Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool for about 30 minutes, then enjoy!
