Let me start this off by informing you this was made for my 21 Day Sugar Detox, so this isn't your typical sugary coffee cake. Now, that said I'll get to the needless, yet brief, jabbering.  

For many, Mothers Day means 1 day of sweets or some other treat, but for me it means my birthday is days away.  This year is slightly different from the rest as I've decided to partake in another round of the 21 Day Sugar Detox.  The detox happens during Mothers Day, my birthday and ends just after Memorial Day weekend. UGH!  In preparation I started toying around with making some sort of dessert to satisfy my sweet tooth and came up with this Apple Spice Coffee Cake.
