Apple Fritter Cake

Apple Fritter Cake

Don’t you just love apple season? West Michigan (where I live) is full of apple orchards and one of my favorite fall activities is going apple picking, and then figuring out fun new ways to use up all the apples I just picked. 🙂 That’s where this recipe comes in. You are going to love this apple fritter cake! It is chock full of cinnamon sweetness, baked apples, and topped with a delicious powdered sugar glaze. Yum!! The cake itself is light and buttery, and very moist. It is so full of tender baked apples that it almost wants to fall part as you cut it. But that is not a problem, because undoubtedly you will want to put each slice in a bowl and pile it high with vanilla ice cream before eating it anyway. 🙂

Apple Fritter Cake

To make the cake you layer the apples and brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top of the cake batter, repeat, and then swirl it all together. The end result is basically an apple fritter baked into a cake – so good!! I hope you try this apple fritter cake during apple season this year- you will want to make it again and again.

  1. That looks amazing!

  2. That looks so DELISH!!! I am making this this afternoon for n=my husband. But I will be making it sugar-free as my husband is diabetic. And thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of Heaven!!!!

  3. Megan, any reason not to use a springform pan for this? I may just go ahead and try even before you’ve had a chance to answer. It seems like a good solution to getting it out for presentation’s sake… especially since I’m out of parchment paper!!! Taking to a friend’s house so I’d love it to look pretty in the end too.

    Hope you’re well!!! I’m loving your recipes as always, thanks for being here! I’ve recently made English Muffin bread and something else I can’t remember at the moment… Miss you! Cara

    • I almost never use a springform pan (I think I’ve made cheesecake twice in my life?) so I have no advice. Did you try it? How did it turn out? If I want something to look pretty and I’m worried about getting it out in one piece, I just serve it in the pan and pretend it’s supposed to be that way. 😉

      I miss you friend, and love that you still read my blog! It’s so good to hear from you, even in a blog comment. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well!!
