Apple Spice Cake


There’s just something about warm apples with cinnamon that makes my heart so happy! Maybe it’s because the combination means it is finally fall, or maybe it’s just because apples and cinnamon is the best flavor ever. EVER.



I’m usually a diehard chocolate person, but I think I love this cake way more than I’ve ever loved chocolate cake. I know, I know!! I’m sorry if I’ve offended you. But I had to let you know the truth. It was for your own good, I promise.


I am not lying when I say this cake is insane. Insanely moist, fluffy, warm, flavorful, and delightful. Imagine biting into a cinnamon- and nutmeg-filled cake and then hitting a bite of sweet, warm, crisp apple. Is there anything better??



One of the things I love most about this cake is that it’s suuuper healthy. Actually healthy. The only sugar comes from a tiny bit of apple sauce and fresh apple, and it’s full of protein from eggs and almond. I’m not saying I haven’t eaten this for breakfast the past few days…


The only issue with this cake is that it’s too delicious. Like, my family (me) ate it in only a few hours. So I seriously recommend doubling the batch to make two cakes 😉

  8. Bake cake for 30-33 minutes, then let cool for 10. Slice and enjoy!
