Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

 Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

When traveling on the road and craving a fresh bakery item to enjoy over the next few days… here is a coffeecake that you can put together in a snap that is delicious, low cost and versatile.  This snack cake is good as a breakfast item, snack or even as a dessert.

I made this while traveling with others in our RV's this week, shared half with a friend traveling solo and still had plenty for 3 plus days for my husband and I to enjoy.

  • Looks like part of the recipe is missing…. how much brown sugar and cinnamon??

  • Hi Victoria – The brown sugar cinnamon comes in a premeasured packet in the package. No need to measure! If you are using a different roll mix let me know. I can give you portion ratios! Chef MJ
