Hey y’all, happy Friday. You get a BONUS post this week, aren’t I nice?

(I also want you guys to eat as much has I do, because then I’ll feel better about myself.)

Are you looking for a perfect EASY weekend recipe? This is it, which is why I had to post it today. Run to the store after work and grab what you need to make this Apple Fritter Coffee Cake for the kids before soccer tomorrow. Or it would be great for Sunday brunch!

I was never an apple fritter fan as a kid, but my mom loved them. Recently I was told about a place near me that serves the BEST apple fritters so of course we had to try them, and I immediately fell in love. How did I not love the deep fried sweet apple-y goodness until now? All those apple fritter loving years, wasted.

As much as I’d love to eat apple fritters every day, I just can’t. For one, the doughnut shop is about 20 minutes away and, well, there’s the whole thing about deep frying stuff being bad for you and all. But this Apple Fritter Coffee Cake? It’s just as good and so not as bad.

The cake is easy – it starts with my favorite mix, Krusteaz. They make a fat-free Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix that is really good (it even comes with real apples in a pouch). I decided to turn it into an easy coffee cake by baking the muffins in a pie plate and adding that telltale apple fritter glaze.

Jordan and I could have eaten several slices of this – thank goodness we shared it with our neighbors. But now I kind of regret it…because I want a slice right now.

This is a fall must-make. You can find the Krusteaz mix at most any grocery store. You can bet I’ll also be making this with the blueberry muffin mix!!

Blueberry fritters. OMG.
