This is a nice recipe that exposes the slices of apples. This Apple cake  is a moist and delicious cake, and very easy to make. A Sponge cake texture and the butter sauce gives a nice balance too the sweet. The apples were soft and golden and the cake was crumbly and light. It isn’t super sweet and goes perfect with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a cup of tea for breakfast.

Ingredients:
for the cake:
2 C. flour
2 C. sugar (more or less depending on taste and your apples)
2 t. baking soda
½ t. salt
½ t. nutmeg
½ t. cinnamon
4 C. cubed granny smith apples (5 medium sized apples for me)
½ c. melted butter
2 eggs, beaten
½ C chopped pecans (optional)
for the butter sauce:
¼ C. butter
½ T flour
2/3 C. sugar
½ C. cream
1 tsp vanilla extract



Preheat oven to 375º. Peel and chop your apples into bite sized chunks. Really this just depends on your preference but I like between a ¼ inch and ½ inch cube. In a medium sized bowl, combine apple cubes, melted butter, eggs, & pecans. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, nutmeg + cinnamon. Stir with a whisk until combined. Add in your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Pour into an un-greased 9×12 baking dish and spread evenly (I used parchment paper so I could pull the cake out and make perfect squares – it’s really not necessary unless perfect presentation is important to you). Bake at 375º for about 45 minutes until a deep molasses color.
Melt butter, add flour then other ingredients and heat until thick. Add in 1 tsp vanilla and pour over the top of each piece just before serving. This sauce re-heats well.
