Cinnamon Sugared Apple Cake


Many of you probably have apples from a recent trip to the orchard, or even the grocery store. I happened to see a farmer selling apples on the side of the road a few weeks ago and I got a gigantic bag of baking apples for $4! I made a huge apple crisp and then I made this cake. And I'm glad I did.

This cake is incredibly versatile - you could serve it as a coffee cake, or as dessert, or any kind of in between event. Or you could just eat it all day long, that's how good it is. In my opinion, it was equally good plain

as it was with ice cream on top, but adding caramel sauce REALLY puts it over the top.  

That cinnamon sugar topping really adds a nice crackly dimension to this beautiful cake studded with apples. This apple cake is easy to throw together and just screams "AUTUMN!" I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Cinnamon Sugared Apple Cake

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup brown sugat
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
3 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
3 cups flour
3 cups peeled and diced apples

1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, applesauce, brown sugar, and sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder and mix well. Add flour in, 1 cup at a time, and incorporate it into the batter before adding more. The batter will be thick. Stir in the apples. 

Transfer batter to a greased 9x13 pan. In a small bowl, combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the top of the batter. 

Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.
