Warm Coffee Cake




Introduction: Warm Coffee Cake

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

Peel and thinly slice the apple. Place in the bottom of the prepared cake pan in an even layer.

Step 4: Combine and Sprinkle

Combine 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle on top of apple slices in cake pan.

Step 5: Pour Batter

Pour batter into cake pan on top of apple slices.

Step 6: Bake Your Coffee Cake

Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

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!!!!

    Hello, and thanks for sharing that recipe. Yummy-licious looking! First - great photo! Grandmother taught me, "The eye eats before the stomach"...so make things look as appealing as possible. Second-oh, I miss Jiffy mixes! Used to live in the States, now in Canada. No Jiffy mixes! (big deep SIGH!). They are fantastic as the jumping-off point to greater things. (My fave is Cornbread Stuffing using the Corn Muffin mix! Sorry -T3h-Muffinator -- no "Muffins for Muffins Act" here in Canada!) Anywhooo....I am also always looking for easy & genuinely good Coffee Cake! This is a "keeper". Ciao!


    Muffin mix is intended for Muffins!

    This is in violation of the Muffins for Muffins act of 18462 (I'm from the future)

    I'm either going to have to ask you to make me some muffins (you can just make a muffin instructable, you don't have to send me them) or I'm going to have to fine you for 500 ebbiewonks.

    P.S. Nice work ;)

    The Muffins for Muffins act of 18462 isn't retroactive, dumbass. It was all over the news, you should know.
