Apple Cake

Original Date: December 24, 2021 Revised Date: December 20, 2022

Christmas is only a few days away. You probably already have your meal planned, everything carefully thought out for your family and friends to sit around and enjoy. But if you’re like me, dessert might be the second thought and you’re still unsure of what to serve. Look no further because this one is defiantly a crowd pleaser.

Last year my mother in law stayed with us for a few months and we were all able to celebrate the holidays together. She made this beautiful apple cake. This cake was such a delicious delight and a perfect ending for our family’s Christmas Eve dinner. I think this lasted maybe another day before it was totally devoured. It’s so easy to make and you never would guess that it starts with a box cake mix….and there is a lot of love in there as well of course.

This cake is so moist and tender with the taste 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 for a celebration. While this cake is the perfect ending to any holiday meal, it also makes a great dessert for anytime.

Here is what you need:

*1 box yellow cake mix; use ingredients listed on the box but instead of water use milk

*1 cup sour cream

*3 red apples; peeled and thinly sliced

*1 cup sugar

*1 tsp. Cinnamon or more to taste

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.
