Tried & True Tuesday: Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

. Hello all!  Hope everyone reading this is coming off a fun, well-spent weekend.  Robbie and I once again had a pretty laid back couple of days, but it was refreshing nonetheless.  Saturday for me was spent with a trip to the Farmer's Market and some errands around town while Robbie studied his little butt off.  Then we finally got together in the evening with another couple to go to the Creighton Men's Soccer game vs. UC Irvine, which they won convincingly with a score of 3-1.  Then on Sunday, Robbie once again went off to study and I had my chance to do a little baking.  You'll hear about that session soon, so stay tuned ☺

To start the week off, I want to lend out a breakfast recipe from Annie's Edibles recipe book [the one I got from Pat].  The Cinnamon Apple Coffee Cake is super simple, perfect for the busy weeks and we all know everyone is busy.  And, of course, it is absolutely delicious.  Absolutely.  The cake itself is uber moist, made so by the apple bits and creamy buttermilk.  The perfect amount of cinnamon and ginger is also added to complement the cake and a crunchy topping rounds out everything most superbly.  I hope you thoroughly enjoy this recipe, but I know there won't be a problem with that.

My Notes:
  • Make sure to let the coffee cake cool completely before cutting, otherwise the cake will break apart.  Not good.
