Apple Pie Cake

I love this apple pie cake! Apple season is quickly approaching! Yay for that chill in the air and all the fall festivities! This super moist apple pie cake tastes like a delicious slice of apple pie with a scoop of ice cream on top. So yummy!

Apple Pie Cake

I love that this cake has apple pie filling in the cake, which keeps things moist and hearty. The sweetened whipped cream that lies between and on top gives the perfect apple pie al la mode vibe to this cake and really compliments the apple pie topping with it’s rich spices.

The apple pie topping is made of sautéed apples with a spiced and delicious glaze that coats and permeates the apple cake. The whole combination is homey, decadent and scrumptious.

What you will need to make this Apple Pie Cake: (printable recipe below)

For the cake

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups apple pie filling
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup salted butter – melted
  • 1 cup milk

For the apple pie topping

  • 1 cup apples – peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Sweetened whip cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix the dry cake ingredients then add the wet ingredients and mix well. Grease 2 – 9 inch round baking pans and line with parchment paper or use whatever pan you wish to use. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before topping.
  2. In a small pan, add chopped apples, corn syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, water, powdered sugar, and lemon juice and bring to a boil then simmer for about 4-5 minutes, stirring continuously. You want your apples to soften and the sauce should thicken slightly but still be syrupy. Allow this mixture to cool before adding to the top of the cake.
  3. Whip the whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla until it forms soft peaks.
  4. Once cake is cooled. Level your cakes, place the first cake on a cake plate. Spread half of the whipped cream topping on the top of your first cake then place the second round cake on top. frost the top of that cake with the remaining whipped cream and add the apple pie topping on top of the cake. Enjoy!
