Thanksgiving Dessert: Apple Pie Cake

Leave a comment

We still had apples leftover from when we went to pick apples and pumpkins in early October. Obviously I needed to do something with them, and making apple cinnamon oatmeal in the mornings wasn’t using them up fast enough. So when I found a recipe for an apple pie cake I decided to try it out.

I used this recipe from Martha Stewart, but doubled the amount of cinnamon, used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of lemon juice, and also added a couple of spoonfuls of sugar to the apples.

It was quick, used up my extra apples, and tasted great for lunch on Saturday. My husband thinks this is better than a regular apple pie, and wants another one for Thanksgiving later this week. I guess that means it was a success.

Apple Pie Cake

{adapted slightly from Martha Stewart}


2 cups flour

1 cup brown sugar

4 teaspoons cinnamon

2 sticks cold butter

8-10 apples

2 tablespoons 1/2 and 1/2

2 tablespoons sugar


1. Combine flour  and brown sugar, and 1/2 of the cinnamon in a medium bowl. Then add in the cold butter, cut into chunks. Mix together in an electric mixer until butter is in smaller pieces.

2. Peel and slice the apples, then mix with 1/2 and 1/2 and remaining cinnamon.

3. Grease a 9-10 inch spring form pan and press 2/3 of the dough mixture into the bottom. Add the apples, and top with remaining mixture.

4. Bake on a foil lined baking sheet at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

5. Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing sides of pan.
