Easy One-Bowl Apple Cake
This easy apple cake requires only one mixing bowl and a handful of basic ingredients, but bakes up into a delightfully dense, moist cake you’ll want to make again and again. This cake leans more on the side of rich and gooey than light and fluffy, so it’s a natural partner to a scoop of ice cream. We suggest using gala, Fugi, or honeycrisp apples as they’ll hold up well in the cake and lend a pleasant apple flavor—you could even use a mix of all three! Keep in mind, this cake bakes up dark in color (baking in a dark pan will enhance this) due in part to the brown sugar and the amount of cinnamon in the batter. Check in after 25-30 minutes in the oven; if your cake’s edges are browning quickly, go ahead and loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil for the remainder of the cake’s bake time.
