Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

The last two mornings I've taken our puppies out, I've been greeted with a chill in the air and a hint of red in the leaves of the woods behind our property.  Autumn is in the air and with it comes a wonderful breakfast... brunch... dessert...  coffee cake.    Whether you enjoy coffee or not is no matter, this cake is delicious all on its own!

Melt the butter in a dish in the microwave while you mix the rest of the cake ingredients in a bowl.  Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9x13 pan.  Mix the ingredients for the swirl and just until combines.  Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife.
