easy apple cake

The sun may still be shining, but anytime this cake it made, it makes me feel like I should be bundled up under a blanket by the fire! As it’s baking in the oven, it fills our kitchen with some of my favorite scents which symbolize the upcoming fall season. This cake is moist and delicious, with a hint of spice, and it’s versatile, too! Serve it for dessert, with tea, or as a coffee cake for breakfast! Whichever way you choose, our Granny Smith or  Golden Delicious apples are perfect for this recipe.

Ingredients

Topping:

1/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cake:
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
½ cup Lepp’s Apple Cider

1 tbsp vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
5 medium apples, peeled cored and chopped

Tip: Use tart apples such as Granny Smiths or Ambrosia for the best flavor
Orange Juice may be used instead of Apple Cider

Method
  1. Combine sugar and cinnamon for topping; set aside.
  2. Beat first 5 cake ingredients in a large bowl
