Apple Pie Coffee Cake

I borrowed the book Bread for Breakfast from the library and though there were many recipes I wanted to try I was only able to make a few of them. Thankfully this Apple Pie Coffee Cake was one of them because it would have been a shame to miss the chance to try this.
This is a quite simple recipe but the outcome is delicious. The apples make the cake wonderfully moist and the sugar sprinkled on top adds a slight crunch that complements it perfectly.
