Apple Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe

Coffee cake has always been one of my favorites, this is a very dense but moist cake. I used the whole wheat flour and it had a very nice flavor to compliment the apples. The crumb cake with apples went perfect with our morning coffee. 

 Coffeecake Batter:
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 cups whole wheat or all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can apple pie filling or use 4 fresh apples minced with a tablespoon flour and 2 tablespoons water
Mix  2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon set aside.

Streusel Topping:
1/4 cup Bisquick baking mix
2 teaspoons firm butter or margarine
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons finely chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup brown sugar
Mix all above in a small bowl and set aside.

Grease and flour a 13x9 pan.
Beat butter at medium speed of electric mixer. Gradually add sugar; beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture, add vanilla. Spoon pie filling on the bottom of the pan sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Spoon batter on to the  apple pie filling.

Sprinkle with nut, crumb, butter mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean.
