Man guys this cake is sooo good! I imagine that it would be perfect for breakfast on Christmas Day but you can have it any time of year! 
I got the inspiration for this cake when I was shopping at costco and saw a cream cheese apple coffee cake there. I never tried it so I can't say how it compares but I don't know if I need to now because of how delicious this one is!
This apple coffee cake is tender with a surprise layer of cream cheese and delicious streusel topping.

My favorite part is the streusel!
If you want a show-stopping treat for breakfast, dessert, or snack then you must make this!
