Apple Cake

For the last couple of years, I've made this cake for Thanksgiving.  Super easy to make and it's really delicious.  The original recipe calls for caramel on top, but I think that it would make it too sweet.  The cake is super moist and delicious, a sprinkle of confectioners sugar it's all it needs.

The apples were picked at the farm in SC, and are perfect for baking.  These are called Stayman Winesap apples.  But you can use Granny Smith or McIntosh apples too.

I cut the apples in small pieces to make sure that with every piece of cake you have chunks of apple. The cinnamon makes this cake really tasty, and the house smells amazing.  This recipe is super easy. You are just adding some ingredients to a cake mix, how easy is that?

After mixing the cake, just add it to the apple mixture and you are done.  Put it in the oven and wait for this amazing cake to be ready.  If you like apples like me, you are going to love this cake.  I know it will be one of your favorites too.

The smell in my house is insane.  You can see the apples in the cake..it came out perfect.  Can't wait to have a nice piece with a hot cup of coffee. I hope you enjoy this cake as much as my hubby and I do.  Remember this cake is perfect for the holidays coming up..Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Enjoy!!

I love the color and the texture of this cake.  I hope you make it soon..Enjoy!!!
