Apple Cinnamon Cake Ingredients

We start with selecting our ingredients. And it is not a surprise that apples are a key ingredient. Some recipes call for only one or two apples. We wanted a cake where each forkful includes an apple. We start with 5 Honeycrisp apples with their sweet-tart flavor. Or use your own favorite baking apples. A pulp-free Orange Juice and vanilla made with Rum are the other key ingredients. The remaining ingredients are typically found in our pantry (eggs, sugar, cinnamon, flour, and baking powder).

Making an Apple Cinnamon Cake

Start with selecting your baking pan for the Apple Cinnamon Cake. For this recipe, we used a 9 inch Springform pan. Other options include a bundt or tube pan. Next spray it with a non-stick spray that includes flour for easier removal. Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place them in a bowl shaking them in cinnamon sugar. Place the bowl aside while making the batter.

Mix together the eggs in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar, olive oil, sifted flour and baking powder. Pour half of the batter into prepared baking pan. Layer half of the cinnamon apples. Top with the remaining batter. Add the remaining cinnamon apples on top pressing lightly into the batter. As a tip, there might be cinnamon sugar juice left at the bottom of the bowl. Typically we would pour that over an apple pie. My tip for you is “don’t do that!” Learn from me. The cake took longer to bake by adding that additional liquid. Luckily for me, the Apple Cinnamon Cake came out moist and tender.

Now our Apple Cinnamon Cake is ready to go into a 350 degree oven. Bake for 1 hour to 1 ½ hours until the cake reaches an internal temperature of 200 to 205 degrees. Let cool for 15-minutes before removing from the pan. Look at the beautiful appearance of this cake!

Serve at room temperature or warm slightly in the microwave. Add a dollop of homemade whipped cream topped with cinnamon sugar! 

Look at how beautiful this cake looks with all its layers of apples.
