I don't care that it's so decadent, since I only make it for special occassions. However, I was looking through a recent Cooking Light the other day, and came across a different, healthier Apple Coffee Cake recipe. Well actually, it's for Amaretto Apple Streusel Cupcakes, and since I'm a huge amaretto fan, it caught my attention. Since our corporate apartment came with no cupcake pan, I made it in an 8 x 11 inch baking dish. As a result, it came out very similar to the previous coffee cake, and actually, almost just as yummy! And bonus: it's relatively healthy! Made with a fraction of the butter and sugar that's in the other one, but with the addition of light cream cheese, very moist and delicious! I may even surprise my relatives one of these days and make this one instead and see what they think. Here's a pic of the cupcakes (from the Cooking Light website):
So my recommedation? Make them both. You won't be disappointed!
