Apple Coffee Cake

Have you ever read a review of a movie and rushed right out to see it...and it was every bit as good as you hoped it would be? Then you understand how I felt when I read about this cake at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen. I had to make it! It is one of those easy cakes that tastes so good, your guests will think "It's probably too hard to make so I won't bother asking for the recipe."
In case you're wondering, it is great with coffee...therefore, to me, it is a coffee cake too!
