Family Favorite- Apple Coffee Cake

Succulent, flavorful and perfect for any time of the day or night!


The Good: This is an absolutely delicious cake that is easy to make and perfect for any occasion.
The Bad: This cake never lasts long.
The Ugly: My coworker keeps threatening me because it took so long to post this.

Suggestions before starting:
As with all recipes I make, I set out the eggs so they will be luke warm when I am ready to make the cake.
Usually 2 apples are enough for this recipe.  We always use Granny Smith apples because they are perfect for baking.  Make sure to dice them fairly small.  My parents usually use a grater for the apples but I like them larger; however, if they are too large it will not bake properly.
The recipe calls for 1 cup of walnuts... I leave these out.  I do not like walnuts but my parents always add them.
Immediately after removing from the oven I cover the cake with a clean towel to keep in the moisture.
