“Moistest” Apple Cake Ever
The are no words to describe the taste of this warm apple cake fresh out of the oven. The whole house smells like apples, cinnamon, perfect for a cold night like tonight.
This is the moistest (not a real word) most delicious apple cake ever.
I have used mine for 15 years.
1 3/4 cups sugar (DIVIDED 1 1/2 and 1/4 cups)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, soft
1 tsp vanilla
6 oz block cream cheese (low fat makes no difference to taste or yummyness)
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups chopped peeled apples (I’ve used every kind but like granny smith the best)
1. preheat oven to 350 and spray 9 inch spring-form pan with cooking spray
2. beat 1 1/2 c sugar, butter, vanilla and cream cheese until well blended. Add eggs 1 at a time and beat until blended after each. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry to creamed mixture and beat on low til blended.
3. combine 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon (to be honest you can use a little less). Combine 2TBSP of cinnamon mixture to apples and mix to coat. Stir apple mixture into batter. Pour batter (it is THICK) into a 9 inch spring form and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon mix.
4. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until cake pulls away from pan at sides or a toothpick comes out clean.
Don’t be afraid-it takes a long time to bake, maybe even longer than written. If it gets too brown cover it loosely with foil.
This is under dessert but it is the best breakfast ever. Make muffins too. Just make it.Thanks Peggy. Peggy’s new Cafe coming soon!
