The iconic flavors of apple and cinnamon infuse this simple and moist cake, making it a delicious snack, part of breakfast, or add a dollop of whipped cream and make it dessert! There is not much in this world that is better on a cold day than the aroma of apples and cinnamon baking in the oven. And the result of this delicious baking aroma is so rewarding–a comforting apple snacking cake that will warm bodies and souls. The cake fills a 9 x 13 baking dish, so it makes enough to serve a group if you have guests, or it will possibly last more than a day, if you don’t.
Slightly decadent, yet at the same time wholesome, this pumpkin chocolate chip bread is moist, sweet, and spiced with the iconic flavors of cinnamon and cloves. A thick slice of it tastes delicious with a hot cup of coffee or tea, or a cold glass of milk. It’s the perfect afternoon treat or after-school snack. And this recipe makes two loaves, so you can either keep both loaves for yourself, or keep one and give one away and make someone’s day!
This is one of the easiest cakes I have ever made. With just a few ingredients, you can create a simple, delicious apple cake that lets the flavor of apple really shine. Moist and full of apple and vanilla flavor, this lovely little cake comes together in no time.
I adapted the recipe from one of my many favorite cookbooks, Savor, by Ilona Oppenheim. I love the recipes in this book because they are centered around pure, seasonal ingredients. I am someone who really enjoys baking, but there are points in life when the time factor discourages me from it. This cake does not take much time at all to whip up, and let me tell you, the house smells sooo good while it is baking! Though I usually make this apple cake to be eaten as a snack or simple dessert, I can imagine it would be great as part of a weekend breakfast too.
