Easy Family Recipes: Apple Butter Breakfast Cake

Coffee cake is one of my kid’s (and husband’s!) favorite breakfasts. I always forget how easy it is to whip one up, especially if you pop it into the oven the night before so that it’s ready to go for breakfast the next morning. This coffee cake uses apple butter, one of this former-Pennsylvania girl’s comfort foods from growing up. Of course, we used to just smear it on a slice of spongy white bread for a treat back in the day instead of cooking with it like you do in this yummy recipe. Be sure to grease your pan well, and absolutely place a foil-covered baking sheet under the pan to take care of any drips that may bubble over. This recipe fills the pan quite full, so be aware of that when you place it in the oven to bake.
