Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake: this delicious breakfast cake combines all your favorites #cinnamonroll #caramelapple

I love making coffee cakes for breakfast! I have a Bible Study group that comes to my house once a week, and this group of ladies knows that there will be something delicious in my kitchen each morning. What better way to start our study than with a big slice of coffee cake, a hot cup of coffee and some laughter with friends!

Here’s the thing with this coffee cake. I based this recipe off of my love of this Cinnamon Cinnabon Coffee cake. Except of course I added in some delicious apples and topped it with a rich Caramel sauce.

To make the recipe even easier, I used Crunch Pak apples! Have you tried these? My kids love sliced apples, so the convenience of having these on hand when we are running out the door is a blessing. I don’t buy much convenience food (since I make enough treats around here), but I don’t mind spending money on healthy convenience food! I bought a bag of the sliced apples, took a paring knife to remove the skin and diced them up. No need to cook them, just toss them in when the recipe calls for it.

Did I mention this makes TWO coffee cakes? It freezes very well too. I have frozen this with the glaze and without. Just thaw on your counter or in the fridge. You can warm it up in your oven or microwave if you like to have a warm slice of cake. Totally YOUR call. Cause it’s YOUR cake.

My good friend Jocelyn, from Inside BruCrew Life loves Crunch Pak apples too! She is sharing a recipe for Apple Snickers Cake today! Stop over there and check it out (and tell her hello from me)!
