Who loves apple season?

Once early Fall hits most people love pumpkin spice but me….I cannot bake with apples fast enough.  I absolutely love to use the different varieties and taste the subtle differences in the results.  Today’s Honeycrisp was sweetly juicy, and even after baking the slices retained that famous crunch they’re known for.  This cake will take any apple you want to throw at it, so go with your favorite.  (It doesn’t cook long enough for any variety to get mushy, so you’ll be good to go.)

Of course, you can get apples year-round, but if you make this cake after a day of apple picking you’ve basically won fall.

Baked Dutch apple cake in a pan

This recipe has been handed down for generations in my family. My great great grandmother was the first person to introduce me to this cake.  I love it-seriously my all time go-to favorite cake recipe. Like most of my recipes, this Dutch Apple Cake is super simple to throw together.  It is moist and not too sweet, which means it’s ideal for a morning or coffee break treat.

I’ve only lightly spiced this cake with a touch of cinnamon and a little nutmeg so as not to overwhelm the delicate apple flavor.  You could spice it more aggressively if you like with a combination of allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
