Fresh Apple Cake is one of my family’s very favorite desserts. It comes together really easy, you don’t even need a mixer! Sweet apples and warm cinnamon will fill your house with the best of autumn baking!
Looking for a wonderful fall dessert? There’s nothing better than fresh apple cake. My mom gave me this recipe and I think it has been in her family for many, many years.
Everyone loves this cake and it is wonderful for the holidays. This cake is full of apples and rich cinnamon flavor which all together creates a wonderfully moist cake. You won’t be disappointed!
My mom says that this cake freezes well, but I have never made it to the freezer with one. This is one of the first recipes that I shared here and I hadn’t made it in a while. I had an abundance of apples last week and decided this was the perfect way to enjoy them.
I had forgotten how easy this cake is to make, you don’t even need a mixer. It is easy enough for a weeknight dessert but totally delicious enough for the holidays or any family get together.
This Fresh Apple Cake was gone in less than a day, so I had to make it again. We really love it! I went ahead and snapped a few new photos and thought I’d give this post a little update. If you only make one apple dessert this fall, this has to be the one!
I have been working towards spending more time marketing the iron furnishings that my husband and son make and trying to update our Red River Iron site. I love developing recipes and marketing, but website development gives me a headache. I have got to find someone to help me out with that.
I’m not the best at outsourcing those things but I’m getting to the point that I’m going to have to let some things go, or completely lose my marbles…. Maybe I will ignore it all and bake another Fresh Apple Cake.
