Easy Apple Cake Recipe with Fresh Apples and Crunchy Walnuts

Easy Apple Cake Recipe, Cut Piece

If you want your home to smell delectable, then baking apples, cinnamon and warm spices in this moist and easy apple cake recipe can help. This simple confectioners’ sugar dusted apple cake is light, tender and loaded with fresh apples along with a bit of crunchy chew from walnuts and molasses. This cake will become a family favorite before you know it. Therefore, let me show you how easy it is to make this large, fruit-filled cake.

Like all cakes with fresh apples, the most effort is peeling and dicing them. Otherwise, it is more about assembling all the ingredients and mixing together. Afterwards, it is just greasing the baking pan and loading the batter to send to the oven.

Though a lot of apple cakes are made in a tube pan, I prefer to bake this in a sheet cake pan about 13 x 9 x 2-inches. I found that the cake bakes sooner than waiting all that extra time for it to finally finish baking. Of course, you can also bake it in a tube pan, but keep that thought in mind.

Give this fresh apple cake recipe a try. If you do decide to bake it, please share my recipe with your family and friends.
