Apples and Spice and Everything Nice
Apple cake is truly one of my fall favorite cakes to bake. It makes me think about the cooler temps, the leaves falling, and sipping hot tea or cider. This cake is the perfect accompaniment and loaded with fall spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Great for snacking too.
I can’t recall where I got this recipe for but it’s definitely a keeper. I use this recipe mainly for cupcakes and small mini loaves for individual servings.
It’s a super simple recipe to put together as there are no apples to chop, that’s right….the apple flavor comes from applesauce which makes this quick and easy to whip up.
I use the unsweetened applesauce as there is enough sugar already in the recipe.
When I had my home based cake business I used this recipe for a fall cupcake flavor and it always got such rave reviews by all my customers. It’s truly a terrific mix of spices and I make this year after year. It is definitely my go to recipe and pairs fantastically with a vanilla buttercream or a cream cheese icing.
Here I use vanilla buttercream and make it a mini cake version in the form of a mini loaf pan. I use a plain round tip for the piping for a fun presentation. Of course always requires some sprinkles to make it fun. Find a fun design to go with.
I know you will love this recipe as much as I have over the years and hands down its truly a 5 star recipe in my book. I hope you try it and come to love it as much as I have.
