So I was in the kitchen today making my sister-in-law a cake for her birthday. (I have not given it to her yet so I will not reveal it until later.) I decided to make something for church tomorrow when an idea struck me. I had some muffin mix so I thought I would make a coffeecake. If I had two packages I would have used them both to make a thicker cake. A simple streusel on top and the cake was finished well, once it was baked of course. Very easy. I guess you could call this Kelli’s Apple Cinnamon Streusel Coffeecake. I like the sound of that.
Apple Cinnamon Streusel Coffeecake
1- 7oz package Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix (i.e. Martha White)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 tablespoon water
Prepare the mix as directed on the label. Pour the batter into a lightly greased 9-inch round cake pan. Mix the topping ingredients together until crumbly, and sprinkle over the batter.Bake the coffeecake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-32 minutes, until the topping is slightly browned and the cake springs back when lightly touched with a finger. Cool slightly before serving.
Variation: To make a thicker cake, use 2 packages of muffin mix with the same amount of topping. Increase baking time to around 42-45 minutes. Also, another idea is to use Blueberry Mix instead of Apple Cinnamon.
