Old Fashioned Fresh Apple Cake

It's Fall in Ohio and you know what that means?! Apple season is in full swing! With all the fresh apples available at the markets, this Old Fashioned Fresh Apple Cake recipe seemed appropriate. This one-bowl fresh apple cake bursting with big chunks of fresh apples could not be any easier or tastier!

This easy Old Fashioned Fresh Apple Cake recipe is the perfect ending to any Fall dinner or a delicious treat in the middle of the day. Because this cake is made in one bowl, clean up is easy too! I actually stumbled across this recipe from a friend's feed on Facebook.  I like this Old Fashioned Apple Cake recipe because it uses a little less oil than most recipes like this. But, the cake comes out moist and tender!

I used a combination of Fugi and Honeycrisp apples in this cake, but you can use whatever apple variety you like best. There are lots of apple varieties out this time of year, and they can vary widely from location to location. Even if the charts say a certain type of apple isn't good for baking, you may find you like it! So I say, experiment and see what you like best!  Here is a link to a handy chart of apple varieties available in NE Ohio for your reference.

Apple vs. Pumpkin

This time of year there seems to be a debate as to the flavor that most represents the season. I love them both! Apple spice...pumpkin spice...to me, it's all good! 

But, if you are on team apple, then this Old Fashioned Fresh Apple Cake recipe is perfect for showcasing those fresh apples of the season!
