If you’re like me, a person who loves baking and autumn smells, then this cake is for you. Easy Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Icing. A cake with whole apple chunks, cinnamon and nutmeg and no mixer needed. And on the top? There is the best part. A velvety brown sugar glaze.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE RECIPE
This easy apple cake with brown sugar frosting is truly the easiest thing you’ll bake this fall. It’s the kind of cake you’ll make at the last minute, you won’t worry at all about whether it will turn out and you won’t need a mixer. If it still worries you and makes you anxious, then you can skip the brown sugar icing.
As I told you, the cake is very easy. You will need two bowls, an egg beater and of course the form in which you will bake the cake. I used a 10 cup (2.4 lt) mold, but a larger one will be fine too.
HOW TO MEASURE THE CAPACITY OF YOUR FORM
It happens many times that you look at a cake mold that you already have and its capacity is not indicated anywhere. At least it has happened to me several times. If you identify there is an easy way to find the capacity of your form. Fill a 500 ml container and then empty it into the cake tin. Repeat until the form is filled to the top. Did you count how many liters it holds? If yes then you have your answer.
This mouthwatering cake is dressed in a velvety brown sugar frosting. The taste is special and enchanting. The process for its preparation is relatively simple. It takes a little care and patience in boiling it. It may take a little more time for it to set. If you want to keep the cake calorically at a lower level then you can avoid it.
WHICH APPLE VARIETY TO USE
For this apple cake with brown sugar icing, you can use any variety of apple you like. As many times as I’ve made it, I’ve used Gala apples. Gala is an apple variety with a sweet, mild flavor, a crisp but not hard texture, and a striped or mottled orange or reddish appearance.
