Whole Grain Apple Pecan Coffee Cake

Updated: May 21

We love fresh apples paired with our whole grain in a delicious coffee cake. Our Whole Wheat Flour is ideal in this recipe and the cake stays moist for several days. This cake is rich and dense with spice and the perfect addition to any breakfast table or brunch. Topped with a generous amount of sugared pecans, it has a hearty crunch.
