Here's another cake that ticks all our boxes. Easy to make. Check. Simple ingredients. Check. Tastes delicious. Check. Better using SideSwipe. Check!
We slightly adapted this recipe from one by Once Upon a Chef. It's a super simple single layer cake that's perfect for the fall, when apples are at their most delicious. Apples are the star of this cake, so choose wisely. We used Honeycrisp apples, but you can use Granny Smith or any other tart-sweet apple that stays firm when you bake. You don't want the apples to disappear. The recipe calls for rum, and you get a little zing from its addition to the cake. But you can replace it with juice or a combination of water and rum extract if you like.
We baked our cake in an 8 x 8-inch pan. You can also use a 9-inch round pan if you prefer. Check the cake about 10 minutes before the finish time. Our baked faster than the original recipe. The cake is done when the top is golden and light finger pressure bounces back.
This cake serves 9 with average size pieces, 6 if you're like our folks. Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar and/or whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Theoretically, the cake will keep for several days at room temperature. We found it didn't last that long at our house!
