One of my favorite flavors of all time is anything apple cinnamon. I am a huge apple pie fan, and during the fall when it seems apple cinnamon everything is everywhere, I am one happy gal!

This apple cinnamon coffee cake is a delicious treat that you can enjoy year round and it’s perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert!
