Apple Sheet Cake

The best baking apples have sweet and tart flavor and hold up as they cook. We like to use Honeycrisp, Braeburn, and Gala here.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan; set aside. Peel, core, and coarsely shred one of the apples. Thinly slice remaining apple, removing seeds; cover and set apples aside. In a large bowl whisk together the butter, brown sugar, apple butter, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; whisk until combined. Fold in dried and fresh shredded apple. Spread batter into prepared pan. Arrange apple slices over batter.
  2. Bake about 40 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack. Spoon Maple Icing over hot cake; spread evenly, using a pastry brush if necessary. Cool completely. Dust with apple pie spice or ground cinnamon.

Delicious, even without the frosting. I just don't need those extra calories! Flavor intense, with pleasantly moist texture. Needed about 45 minutes baking time in my convection oven, and probably could have benefitted from 5 more minutes. Still wonderful, and I plan to make it again, as it was very easy to put together and satisfies deeply.

Made this for my family on New Years Day. Served w/homemade infused cinnamon whipped cream. Definitely a "comfort" dessert.....KEEPER

This was a complete disaster - 40 minutes and it was still wet, wet, wet. After another 30 minutes it seemed to be done. I took it out and tried to turn it out and it collapsed...although it had come out dry on the skewer, it was not really cooked and was puddingy. I had to rescue it and redeem it as best I could and put it in for another 15 minutes. Thank goodness for the icing. Without that it would have looked like I had dropped it on the floor....but cake this is not: I had to serve it as a dessert. Huge embarrassment.

I couldn't find apple butter so I just used unsweetened applesauce and it was fantastic!! A big hit at the office. I would make this again. Super moist.
