Apple and Cinnamon Cake

Autumn is here which to me means hot desserts and cosy bakes. This bake was also inspired by a baking collaboration that I joined on Instagram that is about autumn bakes.

I decided that I wanted to join this collaboration because it gives me a chance to try out different recipes.

This cake was my second attempt at my autumn bake for this collaboration. The first cake I made was a Lemon and Plum upside-down cake. However, it did not go well, the plum upside-down sponge did not go well at all.

Back to the drawing board on what cake to make. After a chat with my friend and her suggestion of something with apples and cinnamon. Well lets do an apple and cinnamon cake.

I used bramley apples for this recipe and 6 was too much apple. I only used half the apple I prepared for this recipe and the cake still had too much apple in it.

This cake is quite stodgy due to too much apple, but it still is super yummy.

I would make this cake again but make it into a sandwich cake to spread out the apple in the cake.

I did really enjoy being a part of the collaboration and it has made me want to do my own. If you follow me on Instagram, then please check out the #autumnbakescollab2020 to see everyone else’s amazing bakes.
