Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

My Mum’s recipe. She tells me she can’t count the number of people who have asked her for the recipe. I made it the other day for the first time and shared it with a friend who has asked for the recipe. So, it’s a goody. And pretty easy too. (Shown here without the almonds because of an allergy in the family)
