Apple Fritter Coffee Cake

My husband absolutely LOVES apple fritters..... I love baking surprises for him especially on Sunday mornings when I have the time. this recipe was originally supposed to be for apple bread.... but it was more cake looking to me and instead of using fresh apples I used a pint of my home canned apple pie filling.... It seems to me when I use fresh apples in recipes they never seem to get cooked all the way thru. I also thought this sounded more like a coffee cake than a bread. So delicious! Enjoy!

Apple Fritter Coffee Cake
Topping:
                1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Cake:
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk or almond milk
      1 pint apple pie filling (I chopped in the can with two knives so the apple pieces were smaller)
Old-Fashioned Creme Glaze
 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
         1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
         1 or two dashes of salt
 1-3 tablespoons of milk or cream- (depending on thickness of glaze wanted)
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 8-inch round cake pan and spray with non-stick spray or grease and flour it. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract.
Combine & whisk flour and baking powder together in another bowl and add into creamed butter mixture and stir until blended.
Mix milk into batter until smooth.
Stir in your apple pie filling until mostly incorporated
Pour half the batter into the prepared cake pan;  then sprinkle half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture over it.
Pour the remaining batter over cinnamon/sugar  layer and top with remaining the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Lightly pat brown sugar mixture into the batter. You can run a knife around through this now to make swirls if desired.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, approximately 25 to 30 minutes approximately. (ovens vary so cooking time varies-- may need a few minutes longer)
To make glaze, mix powdered sugar, vanilla, dash of salt and milk or cream together until well mixed.

Let cool for about 5-10 minutes and turn over onto serving plate. Drizzle with glaze. Serve while still warm! YUMMO
