Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Pin It
I'm throwing in a little seasonal variety today.  Seasonal variety.  That makes sense, right?  We've had such a mild winter here in Texas, so mild that I'm truly frightened about what sort of scorching temperatures summer might bring. 


I'm trying not to worry about it by completely skipping over summer in my mind...and thinking about fall.  Ah FALL, cool breezes, pretty leaves and apples!

Still following my mental distraction from thoughts of Hades Texas summertime?  You'll like where it's going. 

Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze!



So yes, as soon as I remembered that I had pinned this lovely apple cake from Lick the Bowl Good, my mind stopped worrying and wandering and snapped to attention. 

This little cake was super easy to make and turned out so moist and delicious.  The brown sugar glaze put it way over the top.  Make it soon...no need to wait until fall arrives.

Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

by Brandy's Baking
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40-45 minutes

Ingredients
    Cake:
    • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup canola oil
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 1/2 cups finely diced apples
    Glaze:
    • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 3 Tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
    Instructions
    Make the cake:
    1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch pan (round or square, either is fine) and set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
    3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with a hand mixer until light in color and foamy. Add the oil and vanilla and beat well. Stir in the flour mixture with a spoon and stir gently until the flour mixture is incorporated. Fold in the apples.
    4. Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the hot cake on a wire cake. While it's still hot, prepare the glaze.
    Make the glaze:
    1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture comes to a gentle boil. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
    2. Spoon the hot glaze over the warm cake. Cool completely before serving.

    Oh I love this cake- it's just so good! Glad you liked it too :-)

    Oh and I have to agree with you about the scary hot summer that is coming. Eek! I only wish this cake could convince me that it was cool outside.
