Apple Cinnamon Cake

It was a gloomy, rainy afternoon.  So I decided that a warm cake coming out of the oven would cheer everyone up.  I looked around my kitchen to see what would inspire me and I saw the bowl of apples.  Okay, Apple Cinnamon Cake it is then.  Well, it was hardly out of the oven before everyone came from every direction for a piece of it.  I tried my best to make it healthy so everyone was even happier while they indulged.

The Dry Ingredients:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of all purpose flour 
1 Tbs cinnamon powder
1 Tbs baking powder
1 pinch of salt
Mix ingredients well.

The Wet Ingredients:
2 cups cored, peeled and diced apple (any firm apple will do)
1/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
Mix ingredients well.

Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.  Do not over mix.

Butter or Spray a baking pan or bundt pan.  Pour batter into pan and Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until cake is set (when a butter knife comes out clean close to the center).

 Take cake out of baking pan and make a glaze.  The glaze is 1 cup powdered sugar and the juice of one fresh lemon.   Mix well and pour over the cake to glaze.  If you like you can poke wholes around the top of the cake to allow the glaze to seep into the cake.

Slice and serve (best when warm out of the oven).  Enjoy.

  1. this looks fabulous!!!! wowow! i definitely want to try making a vegan version of this :). thanks for the friend request on foodbuzz!

  2. I'll take a piece! This is a fantastic recipe. I love the idea of the lemon glaze on an apple cake. Ok, I love any idea with lemon in it, but that's beside the fact. Thanks for sharing this!

  3. Mmm. Apple cinnamon just makes me feel so... cozy! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. Mmmmm, this looks delicious - so warm and gooey sweet! I just posted a gluten-and-dairy free apple cake made with maple syrup. Our recipes should be friends ;)

  5. A perfect cake!! Perfect for tea (or anytime, really).

  6. Oh that flavor combo is just beautiful! Your cake looks perfect!

  7. The cake looks great ! A bundt pan instantly dresses up your cake without any effort right ? Loved the classic combo of apple n cinnamon in there..

  8. Thanks everyone for the feedback. The cake was pretty good for a last minute "throw it together and bake" cake. I especially loved the tart and sweet icing with lemon. We were scrapping the icing off the cake plate and trying to get ever last bit. : ) The cake is very basic and adding raisins or walnuts would be a great addition.

  9. This looks and sounds delicious! I bet it made your house smell wonderful! Especially on a cruddy day!

  10. Just pulled mine out of the oven, Yummy! Cant wait to try more of your recipes!

  11. This blog is superb and best for informational purposes.
