Cooking Thursday

It's time for Cooking Thursday again! Since it's apple season and I talked about apples yesterday, I thought I would continue and share an apple recipe. I got this one from Lorie of Lorie's Corner. It's the perfect cake to make in the Fall. For more recipes, visit Sandra of Diary of a SAHM.

Chunky Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 granny smith apples, peeled and sliced

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl until blended.
Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to butter mixture, stirring until blended. Stir in apple slices. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely. Spread with cream cheese frosting.

*this batter is very thick. Don't worry when spreading into pan - it will work!

Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar and salt, beating until mixed. Stir in vanilla and spread over cake.

You always have the best receipts so I am going to ask you a question. Do you have an easy receipt for an apple cobbler?

Good grief ... that's the second apple cake recipe I've read in the last ten minutes. Now apple cake is all I can think about! This one sounds so scrumptious, it's almost too good to be true! I think I'll be trying this one. Duly copied! Thanks again, Mari!

Rebecca said...! I'm going to back it tomorrow. I may not sleep just thinking about it!
