Maple Apple Coffeecake

Maple Apple Coffeecake is like eating two different desserts on the same plate.  Well, the way I made it, it does.  I mistakenly made it with a beautiful, crispy chewy, decorative top that turned out to be the bottom.  And a slippery, gooey bottom that, well, became the slippery gooey top.  As I built the simple dessert, […]
