Cake of the Week: Cinnamon-Apple Cake

Happy Thanksgiving.  Maybe you've had your fill of pumpkin pie and pecan pie and think you may never eat desssert again.  But there's always tomorrow!    And if you have houseguests, you'll need to offer them something for breakfast.

We suggest a coffee cake.  Specifically, this 5-star-rated Cinnamon-Apple Cake from Cooking Light. It uses chopped and peeled Rome apples or any other apple you happen to have on hand.  You probably already have the other ingredients in your pantry after all your holiday baking--flour, baking powder, butter, cinnamon, eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla extract.

If you have some leftover cranberry sauce, you might consider the Cranberry-Orange Coffee Cake from Southern Living instead of the apple coffee cake.  Either way, your guests will be happy and you can sit back and enjoy their company and a steaming cup of coffee.
