Apple Coffee Cake*
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
3/4 cups vegetable oil
3 tsp. baking powder
1 (21 oz.) can pie filling (any variety)**
3 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
3 Tbsp. sugar
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix the first six ingredients together in a large mixing bowl; pour half of the batter into a greased and floured 13 X 9-inch baking pan (I used nonstick baking spray).
Spread pie filling over batter and cover with the remaining cake batter.
In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the top; bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Pairs Well With
This wonderful and delicious coffee cake recipe comes from 'Kitchen Comforts: Recipes to Feed Body and Soul', by Gay T. Boassy. *The recipe in the book is titled simply 'Coffee Cake', because you can use any variety of pie filling; I decided to use apple pie filling. **I also had to use two cans of filling.
