In the Test Kitchen, we love coffee cake and this is a super easy recipe. The cake starts with a cake mix but adding a little bit of cinnamon pumps up the flavor. Apple pie filling is dolloped onto the batter. As the dense cake bakes, it surrounds the apple filling. So, when cut the apples are a surprise. Drizzled on top is a glaze that adds just the right amount of sweetness

How to Make Apple Pie Filling Coffee Cake

  1. Heat oven to 350º F.
  2. Beat the first 5 ingredients with a mixer until well blended.
  3. Pour into a greased and floured (or spray with Pam) 13×9-inch pan. Top with spoonfuls of pie filling. The cake will bake up over the filling.
  4. Bake 35 min or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  5. Cool 10 min.
  6. For the glaze, mix powdered sugar and milk. If the glaze is too thick to drizzle, add milk, by teaspoonfuls, until desired consistency.
  7. Drizzle over cake. Cool completely before slicing.
