Apple Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake

Why This Recipe?  Happy 100th Birthday, Aunt Caroline—I couldn't be there for the special day so I want to honor you with this Flip2Tasty post!  Your fine china cup, pearls, and a delicious slice of Apple Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake make for a perfect picture!

The Flip:  This recipe was incredibly easy to make.  It's semi-homemade, so it's really quick!  It is essentially composed of Betty Crocker Cinnamon Streusel Muffin mix, angel food cake mix, and fresh apples.

Normally this recipe calls for oil and butter, but I used applesauce in its place. To make the applesauce creamy I stirred in instant pudding mix—it made the coffee cake so moist!

My thoughts:    This Coffee Cake is perfect for breakfast with a freshly brewed cup of coffee or tea.  I will definitely try this recipe with other fruits—I bet peaches would compliment this cake well!

It's also great for snacks!  For a healthy treat, I sent a slice in my son's school lunch.  This is the kind of treat Weight Watcher members can enjoy, too—it has a low point value!  I hope you enjoy this simple semi-homemade Streusel!
