Cinnamon Apple Coffee Cake

    Great coffee cake. I used cashews as family loves salt on apples. Had just the right flavor. Very tender cake. Thanks

    Love this cake. It's just the right size for my family dinner. The only problem I have is sometimes finding the small size cake mix. Jiffy brand has one which only my local Walmart has. Hope they don't stop carrying it.

    We really enjoyed this! Next time I will chop the nuts a bit smaller, but other than that it was perfect for us!

    I was unimpressed. I doubled everything to accommodate a normal cake mix and a 9x13 pan. It's too much like a cake, rather than a coffee cake. The apples should be tossed with some cinnamon and sugar, rather than just sprinkled on top of them. More nuts would have been better too.

    This is my favorite cake . I also add another apple (especially if they're small). Other than that, I follow the recipe exactly. It tastes like an apple cheesecake. Delicious.

    Very good coffee cake, even my sister, really liked it, and she is very fussy, also like that it makes a 8" square pan.

    The best Apple coffeecake I ever had. We increased the apples by one and added more nuts. Make this recipe right now
