Quick Apple Coffee Cake

Here is a recipe for the delicious Apple Coffee Cake that I made for my dear Grandpa Fred on his birthday. I also made this cake for my family this past week and everyone loved it!

You will need:
3 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups milk

And for the topping:
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons cinnamon
4 cups apples, finely chopped and peeled

To begin, chop the apples (about six) into small bite-size pieces.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.

Cut in butter; add sugar and mix well.

Whisk in the eggs and milk. Then pour batter into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Mix the ingredients for the topping in a clean bowl...

...and then pour or sprinkle over the batter.

Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown and cake tests done with toothpick or fork. Optional: Serve warm with a dollop on ice cream on top.
