Apple Dumpling Cake

Well, I've gotten over missing summer and am now ready to embrace fall. I really love all four seasons; each has different things I look forward to, especially culinary-wise. For fall, it's apples and pumpkins, soups and stews. I had one "go-to" apple cake, but I'm glad to have found another. (And stay tuned for the pumpkin recipes next week!)

Start by preparing the apples. I used golden delicious. Core,


and slice them,

then place them in a lightly greased 9x13 dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon

and brown sugar.

For the batter, combine the flour, sugar, applesauce, salt, baking powder, oil and eggs

and stir just until combined. Pour the batter over the apples

then sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is puffed and golden brown.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Welcome, autumn!
