Apple Coffee Cake - Recipe

To kick off Fall in some sort of official capacity - or the beginning of "our fall" anyway - the weather has finally started to turn! The thermostat was 69 when we woke up this morning, and now it's 72...which is about where we would have it with the a/c perfect! I wonder how long we'll make it without needing the heat on?? It's really starting to cool off, especially at night!

This turned out despite realizing I loaned out my square 9x9 baking pan to a friend (they took the leftovers home in the pan!), so I used a round glass one worked! Super delicious, and very easy and quick to make, even though there are "three parts".

Streusel Topping
2/3 C Bisquick
2/3 C packed brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground nutmeg
1/4 C firm butter

Mix all ingredients together and cut in butter, until mixture is crumbly.

Streusel Topping, divided
2 C Bisquick
2/3 C milk
3 T sugar
1 large egg
2 medium cooking apples, peeled and thinly sliced (2 C)
2 T chopped nuts
Glaze (recipe below)

1. heat oven to 400, Grease bottom and sides of square pan, 9x9x2, with shortening.
2. Make streusel topping, set aside
3. Stir Bisquick, milk, sugar, and egg until blended; beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Spread half of the batter in pan. Arrange apple slices on batter sprinkle with half of the streusel topping. Spread remaining batter over the apples, and sprinkle with remaining topping. Sprinkle with nuts (I omit this step - not a nut fan)
4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes in the pan on wire rack. Drizzle with glaze. Serve warm or cool.

1/2 C powdered sugar
2 to 3 t milk

Mix all ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle.
