This easy apple spice layer cake has moist layers of spice cake, cinnamon apples, cream cheese cinnamon frosting, and a spice drizzle on top. The fall season will be well represented and well on its way with this cake. Trust me you are going to want to keep this one.
Apple season has started and there are many apple orchards within a thirty minute drive from my house. This means the choices are bountiful. What could be better than a layer cake with fall’s favorites. Apples, spices, and pecans.
Apple spice layer cake is an easy cake to make for the holidays, special occasion, or as a family favorite. Don’t let the thoughts of making a layer cake intimidate you. The difficulty is deciding which recipe to use. After my extensive search for an easy recipe, I actually found two. These two recipes fit just right. After reviewing both recipes they each had elements that I wanted. Making my final decision to combine what I like about each of them. The verdict was the filling and frosting would be the focus for this delicious delight.
After determining the frosting and layer filling was going to be the stars. I needed the actual cake to be an easy one. However, I needed this cake to also be beautiful and delicious. I decided to use a box mix (no shamming please). There are many box mixes on the market today that have a really nice flavor and texture when baked.
Time To Bake
For the frosting I used the recipe from The Domestic Rebel’s. The cinnamon apple recipe was from Life Love and Sugar. Don’t get me wrong these recipes are wonderful on their own. However, I like to mix and match portions of recipes to get the best of both (my opinion only). This option may not work for everyone.
This cake was even better than I anticipated. The cake layers were moist and the apples were tendered with loads of flavor. Cream cheese was just the right choice for the frosting. It was light, fluffy, and the spices gave just the right amount of fall flavor. I am looking forward to its grand debut at my next family gathering or holiday meal.
Don’t keep this gem hidden until fall arrives each year. Feel free to bake this delicious cake for an event any time of the year. Maybe even for a special family weekend treat.
Does your family have a favorite cake that can be enjoyed year round?
