I am always stuck on what to cook for breakfast for out-of-town guests during the holidays. I would rather drink coffee and eat cold cereal then put out any real effort first thing in the morning- I am NOT a morning person. This quick and delicious Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake is the perfect solution when my regular fare won't cut it.
2 7-ounce boxes Apple Cinnamon muffin mix(such as Jiffy), prepared as directed
1 Granny Smith apple
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup prepared vanilla frosting
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Step 1: Preheat oven and grease a cake pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8-inch cake pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: Prepare batter
Prepare muffin batter as directed on the box. Jiffy brand Apple Cinnamon muffin mix calls for adding 2 eggs and 1/2 c milk to the dry mix.
Step 3: Peel and slice apple

Step 5: Pour Batter

Step 6: Bake your coffee cake

Step 7: Let cool and flip
Let cake cool in pan for at least 10 minutes, and then flip onto serving platter.
Step 8: Stir and drizzle
Stir together cinnamon and frosting. You may need to add a few tablespoons of milk to thin the frosting. Drizzle over coffee cake and serve immediatly. Enjoy!!!!
