I discovered this recipe in 2006 when Emeril Legasse surprised a deserving mom on Good Morning America. You know, every year he comes into the home of some poor, unsuspecting mom like gangbusters, cameras and tearjerking video montage ready. Then he makes her eat breakfast in a prop bed in her front yard while the neighbors watch. Anyhow, this coffee cake looked delectable. Turns out, IT IS. So if you’re looking to make your mom something tomorrow to impress her or just need an excuse to use up apples I’d go with this. You can find the recipe here.
Note: I use about half the glaze. It’s pretty sweet as is with the crumble. Also, I add extra cinnamon and apples. In any recipe that ever calls for either. But especially here.
