I made this coffee cake for Christmas morning breakfast (hence the lack of prep photos). Cream cheese and apples? Sign me up. The bake time is a little lengthy, but I thought it was well worth it. This makes plenty and would be perfect for company!
I used half butter, half cinnamon sugar spread. If you don’t have cinnamon sugar spread available, just use butter in its place. You can never go wrong with more butter.
