Sometimes the simplest recipes are the absolute best, and this Old-Fashioned Apple Spice Cake is no exception! A moist cake batter that is topped with fresh apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar is sure to be a hit — especially when it’s finished with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Happy Autumn!

  1. This looks fantastic. I am more of a cake than pie person, so I am looking for apple cake ideas. Pinned. Thanks for bringing this to Weekend Bites (formally Foodie Friday).

  2. I have a sad and slightly wrinkled apple sitting on the side, if I don’t do something with it today I’ll have to bin it! I’m going to give this a whirl later. Thanks
