Apple Cake Recipes Deserving of Second Helpings

November 25, 2015 5:24 pm

Apple cake is a unique alternative to apple pie that uses a soft, moist cake base instead of the usual pie crust. This cake can be made a number of different ways, but no matter how you make it, it’s always full of fall flavor. Here are three sweet apple cake recipes for your next autumn gathering.

Uncle Bob’s Fresh Apple Cake [foodnetwork.com]
Paula Deen’s down-home take on apple cake uses tart Granny Smith apples and lightly toasted walnuts to create a flavorful, hearty bundt cake. Top it with a honey glaze for a warm taste that pairs perfectly with morning coffee or a scoop of after-dinner ice cream.

Marie-Hélène's Apple Cake [epicurious.com]
If you want to create a more sophisticated apple cake, this recipe is both simple and complex. Its creator, Marie-Hélène Brunet-Lhoste, is a top Parisian restaurant critic, and she uses her French culinary expertise in every aspect of the cake. Large, thick pieces of apple take center stage, while the cake base and a hefty splash of rum accent the natural fruit flavor.

German Apple Cake [tasteofhome.com]
This traditional German dessert recipe is a bit less sweet than other versions, which makes it ideal to eat for breakfast just as much as dessert. In addition to the usual spices, orange juice offers a bit of zest to complement the tart apples.
