Apples and Apple Cider are two classic Fall Favorites that I can’t help butLove. One of the things I look forward to eating at this time of year is fresh apple cake. This one uses both my favorites and carries the apple cider through in the cake, filling, and icing; along with the deep, caramel flavor of the brown sugar. A triple treat for your taste buds! It is very similar in taste to gingerbread, only more subtle for its lack of molasses.
The first thing you notice about this cake is the sweet, spicy scent following you around the kitchen begging you to pay it more attention. It screams eat me. And when you do you will be so grateful you made this cake. The frosting is just divine made with cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon and apple cider. The filling is similar to an apple pie filling. The cake is incredibly moist; it will melt in your mouth in pure, sweet, cinnamon-spicy, apple bliss.
I did make one mistake, that almost stopped me from sharing this. I thought the apple cider would be sufficient enough to stop the apples from browning. But they took on this nice hue of deep purple that is slightly off putting; it had no affect on the taste; nor did it stop anyone from eating it. All.
