Today is national dessert day! I thought I would share with you a recipe I found for apple spice cake. I actually saw it on Pampered Chef’s Instagram page, a recipe from Alana over @sleepingmakesmehungry. It looked so delicious, I wanted to give it a try. Plus, it allowed me to give my new Flex+ Multi-prep product a real workout!
I never would have thought to put grated apples in a cake, but this is why I look for new recipes, lol. Let’s jump right in!
What you’ll need:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nut
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp cloves
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1/3 cup warm milk
- One cup melted butter
- Three cups grated apples, preferably Granny Smith
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- Caramel sauce, optional
Here we go!
Preheat your oven to 325° F. Spray your 9-in Springform pan, then line just the bottom with parchment paper.
Peel and core 1 lb apples to make three cups grated. I LOVE my Apple Corer, makes it easy to do!
This was where I brought in the first part of my Flex +, the food processor portion. It’s really nice, as you can see in the video, because it’s easy to put together and it’s cordless!
Next, add warm milk, melted butter and vanilla to dry ingredients. For this I use the second part of the Flex +, the mixer.
Add in your grated apple and mix until The apples are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
Pour batter into pan and smooth the top with your scraper.
You can add apple slices if you like, but you don’t have to.
Bake for 65-75 minutes, or until the center is cooked.
At this point, I grabbed my Deluxe Cooking Blender, and made some homemade caramel really quick with heavy cream, butter, brown sugar and a little vanilla. Of course, you don’t have to use caramel to top but if you do you can make your own with the Deluxe cooking blender, or buy a jar at the store.
Once your cake is cooked, let it cool for 5 minutes and then remove the outer portion of the Spring form pan.
If you are using the caramel, now is the time to pour it over the cake while it is still warm.
Cool completely, then slice and serve. That’s it! This cake was gone within a day. It made the house smell amazing, too! I believe that this would freeze well, however we did not find out if this was the case, lol.
