Christmas Morning Apple Coffee Cake

This is perfect for early Christmas morning. Served with a strong coffee or homemade Hot Cocoa. The kids will love it too.

Christmas Morning Apple Coffee Cake:

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
1 - 9" square baking pan sprayed with vegetable cooking spray.
It can also be made in a Springform Pan and looks really nice! I brush it well with Pan Release Mix.

The Topping:
2/3 C Bisquick Mix (I attached a recipe at the end for homemade Bisquick Mix for my friends that don't have access to Original Bisquick.)
2/3 C Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
4 TBS Butter, cold and cubed

The Batter:
2 C Bisquick Mix
2/3 C Whole Milk
3 TBS Granulated Sugar
1 Egg
2 Apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced. ( I use Jonagold Apples)
2 TBS chopped Pecans

The Icing:
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
2 - 3 TBS Whole Milk

The Topping Directions:

In a small bowl:
2/3 C Bisquick Mix
Brown Sugar
Whisk well.
Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender or 2 forks....... or use your hands. (I use my hands)
Create a crumble and set aside.

The Batter instructions:

In another medium bowl:
2 C Bisquick Mix
2/3 C Whole Milk
Granulated Sugar
Beat well with a wooden spoon for 30 seconds.
Spread half of the batter into the pan.
Arrange the Apple slices on top of the batter.
Sprinkled evenly with half of the topping.
Pour remaining batter the over the topping.
Sprinkle with remaining topping.
Sprinkle the nuts evenly on the top.

Bake for 25 minutes until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Remove to a rack and cool for 20 minutes.

Make the Icing.
In a small bowl:
Confectioner's Sugar
Whole Milk
Stir by hand until blended and smooth.
Drizzle over the entire Coffee Cake.

I decided to add this recipe as a separate post for friends that don't have access to the All American Iconic Bisquick Mix!

Homemade Bisquick Mix:

10 C flour
1/3 C baking powder
1/4 C sugar
4 tsp salt
2 C shortening ( Crisco) or any non refrigerated shortening

In a large bowl:
baking powder
Mix Well

Work the shortening into the mixture using a pastry blender or 2 forks until it forms a coarse crumble mixture.

Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months, unrefrigerated.

Peace in the Kitchen!
