Cinnamon Ginger Apple Cake

Apples = September for me.  It's the start of the school year so everyone thinks of giving an apple to the teacher.. well they used to do that in the olden days. It's also apple harvesting time and you can find a beautiful bounty of apples to chose from these days.  My favorite apples are Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, McIntosh and Gala.  I got a good deal on Golden Delicious apples the other day at the grocery store so I decided to throw some into a cake.  This cake tasted like apple pie.  I was thrilled to bits because husband and mother both flipped for this cake.  I love when people react like that to something I make... especially something I baked.   I think I will have to make this easy cake recipe many more times to celebrate fall this year.

1 box yellow cake mix
** ingredients on box cake mix.  I always substitute milk for the water in the recipe.
2 cups (peeled and diced) golden delicious apples
1 Tbs ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg

sliced apples
1/4 cup brown sugar
2-3 Tbs cold butter

 Mix cake batter and add ground spices.  The fold in the two cups of apples.   Grease or spray a bundt cake pan well.  If you decided to do the optional topping mix the cold butter and brown sugar.  Place the mixture on the bottom of the bundt pan. Arrange apples slices around bundt pan as shown.

Pour batter over apples in pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes.  Mine was done at 50 minutes.  Test with a wooden skewer or a butter knife near the center of the bundt to check.  Allow cake to cook in pan for 30 minutes and then invert onto cake plate.  Enjoy.
