It’s National Coffee Month! How are you celebrating? I’m over here doing the happy dance and no, I’m not sharing photos! However, I am going to share my favorite way to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee and the recipe for my Cranberry Apple Coffee Cake. This coffee cake pairs perfectly with my favorite cup of Joe.

How to Make Cranberry Apple Coffee Cake

When my day starts with a freshly brewed cup of coffee, all is right with the world. However, I don’t stop there. A mid-afternoon coffee break is just the thing to recharge me and get my creative juices flowing again. Coffee breaks don’t have to be boring. This is how I create the perfect coffee break experience.

Create the Perfect Coffee Break Experience

Brew the Perfect Cup of Coffee

Cranberry Apple Coffee Cake

The perfect cup of coffee begins with the best coffee machine. You don’t have to spend a fortune and there’s no need to run all over town. Walmart has everything you need, including Mr. Coffee® 12-cup Programmable Advanced Brew Coffee Maker.

This sleek coffee maker has my favorite pause n’ serve feature for those days when I need my coffee ASAP. I can also change the strength of my coffee (hubby likes it strong) and it has a fresh brew timer.

Helpful Hint: Be sure and visit your local Walmart for an in-store coupon to save $5 on all Mr. Coffee® Coffeemakers and Espresso Units over $29.

When you’re in Walmart, look for the Mr. Coffee® Product Demo. A cup of freshly brewed coffee while I shop? Yes, please!

Choose an Off-The-Chain Coffee Mug

A cool coffee mug has to represent, right? My favorite mug describes me to a tee. I admit that I may be more than a little obsessed with this mug.

Pair your Perfect Cup of Coffee with Cranberry Apple Coffee Cake

An amazing cup of coffee needs a delicious sidekick. My Cranberry Apple Coffee Cake is a match made in heaven.

Mix the topping ingredients together and pour it into a greased cake pan.

Mix the batter and bake for 35-40 minutes. Sometimes I can’t wait until my afternoon coffee break, so I have this cake for breakfast with my coffee.

It’s crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside and has just the right amount of sweetness to pair perfectly with a cup of my favorite coffee.

 Pick a Relaxing Environment

I never take coffee breaks at my desk. I’m too tempted to keep working. So, I head outside to my front porch. It’s the perfect place to get my mind off of work and onto the beauty of nature. Sipping coffee, eating my favorite Cranberry Apple Coffee Cake and listening to the sounds of birds chirping has a calming effect on me. Once my coffee break is over, I’m renewed, refreshed and revived!

  21. I mean, this coffee break is amazing and certainly not boring! I bet if I had a cake like this I’d take more coffee breaks!! I actually buy coffee and things related from Walmart so many times because everything is right there. The new coffee maker looks great and the ability to change the strength of the coffee is an added bonus. We actually need a new brewer like this because ours broke and we only have the single brewer (it’s nice to have it especially when friends come over). Love that mug, and the order in which the words are written:)

  22. Oh my.. this looks so delicious gonna try this out on weekend
