Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake with Caramel Glaze

I made these a while back and they were incredible!  They would make a wonderful Christmas morning breakfast or if you are looking for something to gift, this recipe is great for that as well because it makes two coffee cakes!  This recipe is from Shugary Sweets.

For the cake:
3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Filling:
3/4 cup unsalted butter  (softened)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 1/2 cup apples (peeled and diced)

For the Glaze:
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350.  Grease two 9 inch round cake pans and set to the side.  In a mixer combine all the ingredients for the cake until fully combined. Pour evenly into the two cake pans.  In the same bowl beat together the butter with the brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Once they are combined, fold in the apples.  Drop scoops of the filling into the cake pans then swirl with a knife.  Bake for 30 minutes or until the cake is done.  Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.  Let the cake cool for another 20 minutes then begin the glaze.  Melt the butter in a small saucepan then whisk in the brown sugar and bring to a boil.  Add in the milk and whisk then remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar.  Pour evenly over each cake.
