There’s nothing like the aroma of apples baking in a sweet cake. Apple cakes usually have a sweet cinnamon, nutmeg or nut flavor that pair perfectly with the tart apples. Here we have 20 of the most amazing apple cake recipes you’ll find on the web. Bundt cakes with drizzle, crumb cakes that go so well with a cup of coffee, gorgeous two layer cakes and quick snack cakes…whatever the occasion, here you’ll find a new cake to make for it.
What apples are best for baking?
Granny Smith apples are most often used for baking since they have a bright, tart flavor to contrast the sugar in the cake and hold up well to baking. Don’t overlook Braeburn apples though…they are still slightly tart, but more sweet than Granny Smith. They also hold up well to baking, have a delicious texture and are an all-around delicious apple.
If you’ll be baking many apple desserts, you’ll definitely want an apple peeler/slicer/corer. It makes apple cakes and pies so much easier!
The Best Apple Cake Recipes
Bundt cakes are classic. Don’t forget to use shortening and flour when you prepare your bundt cake pan so the cake comes out easily. Apples keep bundt cakes moist and packed with flavor.
Layer cakes always make a beautiful presentation and they’re not as hard as you might think!
