My mother in law made a beautiful apple cake for our Christmas Eve dinner. It was really hard not to sneak a slice after it was done baking.
I had to update this a little after I finally got to taste this. This cake was such a delicious delight and a perfect ending for our family’s Christmas Eve dinner. This cake is so moist with the hint of apples throughout. The cinnamon sugar adds the perfect touch and a little crunch on the bottom. It’s also amazing with fresh whip cream or vanilla bean ice cream… or why not add both, after all it’s a celebration.
Here is what she used:
*1 box yellow cake mix; use ingredients listed on the box but instead of water use milk
*1 cup sour cream
*3 red apples; thinly sliced
*1 cup sugar
*1 tsp. Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°
Spray a Bundt cake pan with no stick flour baking spray; set aside.
Prepare yellow cake mix according to box directions but add milk instead of the water; mix in the sour cream.
Combine sugar and cinnamon.
Pour some of the cake batter into the bottom of the cake pan. Place some of the apple slices on top then sprinkle with some of the cinnamon sugar mix. Pour another layer of the cake batter on top of the apple mix. Place more apples around on top of the batter then sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar.
Pour on the rest of the cake batter. Top with the rest of the apples and sprinkle with the rest of the cinnamon sugar mix.
Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean.
