The Apple Cake Recipe Made Easy

Looking for an easy apple cake recipe? Well, I've got some yummy ones to share with you.

And if you’re looking for a yummy applesauce cake recipe, I’ve included some for you to try.

Apples are one of the most popular fruits for good reason.

They taste great, are good for you, and there's a good variety with this fruit between the popular types for baking.

If you've never been to the Apple Festivals in Western N.C, you might want to put it on your bucket list.  It's all about apples, with apple butter, cider, pies, and of course apples by the bushel.

You can even go out into the orchards and pick your own apples. And in the middle of town, all kinds of fun things, like street dances and entertainment, as well as a parade.

These are some of the best baking apples you can use:

apple and applesauce ingredients
  • Cortland – with a tart and firm texture, this apple will hold its shape when baked.    
  • Honeycrisps – has a crisp sweet texture that is perfect for baking 
  • Gala – crisp and sweet, it not only holds its shape but calls for less sugar in recipes.    
  • Golden Delicious – with a soft and sweet taste, it’s good for making applesauce. 
  • Granny Smith – with a tart and tangy taste, it’s great to add to any recipe that calls for apples.    
  • Macintosh – sweet and juicy, this is most often the apple of choice when baking.

Why not try them all and find out which one gives you the flavor you love the most? Try to mix and match too. Using a couple different apples in your recipe will change the taste a little to give you more flavor.

Here are some of the best apple cakes I have made. Which ones are your favorites?
