Apple Cinnamon coffee cake

I had some apples that needed using up... didn't want to waste money and throw them you ever have stuff that you are wondering what to do with?  Do what I did...come up with a recipe to use up those ingredients before you throw them away...
With this recipe try other fruit, peaches, plums, pears, blueberries...use what you have or use frozen...
I made a maple syrup glaze to put over the top.  You can skip this and serve the cake plain, or just sprinkle the cake with powdered sugar...Enjoy

Apple Cinnamon coffee cake

1 yellow/white cake mix
4 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
2 apples, peeled and chopped small
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 T. maple syrup

Maple glaze

1 T. maple syrup
1 cup powdered sugar
1 T. water

Mix all ingredients well.  Mixture needs to run off of the spoon..might depending on the humidity and weather have to add a little more water or powdered sugar to get the right consistency.

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a bundt pan with nonstick spray and flour pan well.  In mixing bowl place, cake mix, eggs, sour cream, oil and applesauce mix well for 2 minutes.  Batter will be thick.  Place half the batter in pan.  In small bowl mix apples, cinnamon, sugar,almonds & nutmeg together mixing well.  Sprinkle apple mixture over batter in pan.  Drizzle apple mixture lightly with maple syrup. Spread remaining batter in pan.  Bake for 37-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean and top is golden.  Let cool 5 minutes and run a knife all round pan to loosen cake.  Invert cake on a serving plate.  Let cool completely.  If using glaze mix glaze mixture and drizzle over cake.  Can alternately dust with powdered sugar or just serve plain.  Enjoy
