.@VickiBatman ~ This Apple #Cake is easy peasy. Honest!
A few weeks ago, I tagged along with Handsome when he attended a conference. Before going to shows, we went to dinner. At one spot, I had to have dessert: Apple Crumb Cake
Fast forward to Easter.... I like to make a nice dessert and lately, have been baking a strawberry cake. So I went through my recipes and came across an easy apple cake recipe. I had to make it, but with my own touch.
6 Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into slices.
1 large lemon
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 box of white cake mix
1 stick of butter
Spray your pan with nonstick spray. Zest the lemon. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze out the juice. Toss together the apples, zest, juice, and sugar. Layer in your pan. Sprinkle the cake mix over the apples. Melt the butter and pour over the cake mix. Bake 350 for 35-45 minutes, definitely until bubbly.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
It is absolutely delicious. You could omit the lemon and sub a bit of cinnamon. I'm just hooked on the fresh apple taste and tired of overly cinnamon-y desserts.
Do you have a special cake you like to bake?
