Apple Walnut Coffee Cake

A dense, moist coffee cake that’s wonderful for sharing by the slice at home and by the round as a holiday or neighborly gift.

With just enough batter to cover the apples and nuts, the baked results will remind you of fruitcake. A simple sugar icing drizzled over the dresses it up nicely.
