Apple Coffee Cake
I enjoy a warm piece of cake with my coffee. The apples and cinnamon of this cake make a very tasty treat for either breakfast or an afternoon snack.
Spray an 8″ round pan with cooking spray and set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl combine brown sugar, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Melt butter in the prepared pan in the oven. Remove from the oven, once the butter is melted, and sprinkle the bottom of the pan with the brown sugar mixture. Arrange apple slices on top of the sugar mixture in a circular pattern.
In a small bowl combine the egg, buttermilk and vanilla. In a medium bowl combine the baking mix, nutmeg, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk mixture. Mix with a spoon until just mixed; don’t over mix
Spoon the batter over the apples and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cook the cake for 5 minutes in the pan. Run a knife around the edges of the pan and invert onto a plate. Serve warm.
