Friday Food : Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake

This week I was surfing around on Pinterest when I noticed two recipes (both pinned by my friend Jessica I think) involving apples. I’ve been buying apples at the store each week as breakfast or snack add-ons, but I don’t always eat them. Hating to waste food and noticing last round’s apples were starting to lose their oopmh I wanted to cook or bake with them. She pinned ideas for homemade Apple Butter (yum!) and Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake. Personally, I wanted to go with the apple butter, but couldn’t find a solid answer on how many apples equal a pound (it ranged from 1 to 10) so until I know THAT answer I am not about to waste a bunch of time and efforts. So ease simple Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake from Pinch of Yum it was!

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Cake

What you will need:

  • 1½ cups brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (you can sub milk+vinegar, or plain yogurt+milk)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 1½ cups chopped apples
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbs. butter

Want the directions and to learn more about the origins of this amazing cake? Then head on over to Pinch of Yum, because I believe in credit where credit is due! I will say I used Greek yogurt instead of buttermilk and probably used closer to 2 cups of apples, and the cake was so fluffy and yummy. It’s such a great weekend company breakfast piece.

What do you enjoy doing with your leftover apples? Is there such a thing as leftover apples in your house?
