Cinnamon Apple Cake is a perfect dessert for the fall months! Apples are delicious this time of year!
This cake is made in a Bundt pan, which creates a fun shape and lovely decoration. If you don’t have a pan like this, you should get one! There are lots of different kinds, and most are pretty inexpensive. You can even buy ones made out of silicone, which is super non-stick.
You can use whichever kind of apples you’d like in this recipe– I usually try to do Granny Smith, because they have so much flavor. But if there’s another apple that looks better and is on sale, try it!
Many cake recipes call for diced apples. While I like getting the occasional chunk, I really prefer grated apples, which is what this recipe calls for. Grating the apples releases a lot more the juice, so the cake is super moist and has that amazing fresh apple flavor.
Chef Shamy Cinnamon Honey Butter also adds a lot of delicious flavor to this cake. It’s sweet, cinnamon-y, and perfect for baking!
