One of the activities I signed on for this year as part of the PTA was to provide a baked good on Valentine’s Day for a teacher at my daughter’s elementary school. Sweets for the Sweet is our school’s way of thanking the teachers for all their hard work. So, in order to provide a tasty baked good for one lucky teacher I started doing some surfing to find a good recipe. I discovered Dessert First Girl and her Apricot Crumb Coffee Cake. Dessert First Girl is very impressive….she is actually trained in all things pastry, is a food writer, and has written cookbooks! I am in serious awe. I decided to attempt her coffee cake recipe, although I made a couple of small changes based on the fact that I am lazy and was missing an ingredient or two. So, I encourage you to head over to Dessert First Girl and see her version of this recipe but below is what I made tonight.
This coffee cake is not overly sweet, which I prefer. The recipe is fairly easy to make, too, although all three steps required my Kitchenaid mixer which meant washing it several times but the final product was well worth the extra work.
