Sweet Potato Apple Crumb Coffee Cake

Good heavens, the holidays are nearly here!
Where did the year go? I feel like I just took down my Christmas decorations, and now they need to go back up. I’m really not ready for it this year. Rather than ‘ho ho ho’, I feel ‘ho ho ho-hum’. Some years I get filled with the holiday spirit weeks in advance of Thanksgiving. This year, I am feeling a little like the Grinch! The best cure for the holiday grumpies is baking. I have most of my cookies baked (and stay tuned, because one of the cookies I baked is also a new recipe that will show up here next week!), and I am going to get that damn tree up this week. I am. Them maybe I will have a little more jingle in my step!
So, in the spirit of giving – which I also need to get into – I present a lovely coffee cake that you could give to family, friends, co-workers, or even serve for breakfast after Santa has finished his rounds. Most people expect pumpkin cakes around this time of year, so I switched things up and went with sweet potato. It makes this cake incredibly moist and rich, and it stays that way for a few days if stored in an air-tight container in the fridge. You can make this cake up the night before you plan to serve it, then just bake it before your guests arrive, or before your family gets out of bed. The scent just screams holiday cheer! This would also make a great dessert for the holidays or Thanksgiving. If you like things nutty, a cup of finely chopped pecans or walnuts would be a lovely addition. Add 2/3 to the batter and the rest to the topping!
