Easy Apple Cake

Easy Apple Cake


This Apple Cake is the perfect weekend breakfast, it’s fast and easy to prepare and sweet and indulgent while being packed with apples. It only has a couple simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge, so gather them together and get baking! Growing up and living in the Northeastern United States, we went apple picking every fall, coming home with bags and bushels of perfectly sweet and delicious apples of all sorts. This is the perfect apple recipe to use some of your beautiful bounty. It’s not too sweet and it is flexible to the type of apple used. We’ve had this with super tart Granny Smiths to super sweet Macintosh and it’s good with them all.

This recipe makes a small 8 x 6 inch cake, so double this up if you have a hungry family on your hands and make a full 9×13 baking dish full.

The sliced apples on the top are completely optional, but I think they are a fairly quick and easy way to make this cake look special.
