Apple Cranberry Coffee Cake



I have this classmate who always brings coffee cake to school for breakfast. Everyday I see her eating her super yummy lookin cake during our classes together. Wait. Once she was eating banana bread. But that was only once. I’ve never had coffee cake and I didn’t want to take hers, so I made my own! :) Did you know coffee cake doesn’t have coffee in it??? I didn't…I guess you’re just supposed to eat the cake W/ coffee. Ohhhh. Well here's my version of coffee cake…it was really moist and tasty!

Apple Cranberry Coffee Cake
