Apple Cinnamon Cake

John’s loves all things apple! I created this sweet, moist cake by combining several of our favorite apple cake recipes. Make it a day before serving to enhance the flavor and moistness. It’s a great coffee cake or top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a terrific dessert. Enjoy!

For the cake:

1 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
¾ cup sugar
2 cups peeled and roughly chopped apples (Granny Smith and Honeycrisp make a good combination)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup vegetable oil
½ cup sour cream

For the cinnamon topping:

½ cup granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and cinnamon.
  3. In a separate bowl, add eggs and whisk well. Add vanilla, oil, and sour cream and whisk to blend with the eggs. Add apples and stir to combine.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Gently mix with wooden spoon until combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  6. Make the cinnamon topping by combining all the ingredients. Mix until lumpy and wet. Sprinkle over cake batter.
  7. Bake cake 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
