A very moist Apple Spice Cake with Brown Butter Frosting is a perfect dessert for the Fall. Made with real apples with a touch of cinnamon, you’ll look for this dessert every year.
I go absolutely crazy of apple and pumpkin recipes during the Fall. These are the two flavors that only make sense to me during this time. I am always looking at how to make classic fall desserts better or give them a twist. I think I have accomplished that in dessert recipes such as Caramel Apple Pumpkin Upside Down Cake and Skillet Dutch Apple Pie, both of which have received great reviews.
How I made this Apple Spice Cake
This Apple Spice Cake is made with real apples. I used Honey Crisp Apples because I think it’s pretty potent of apple flavor and they’re my favorite apple, to be honest. I used a regular cheese grater to grate the apples finely. You don’t have to squeeze the apples afterward. All of that flavor is going to get baked into the cake. You will definitely appreciate it after your first bite.
The browned butter frosting takes the cake to another level. Brown butter has a delicious nutty flavor that works well with Apple Cake. When browning the butter you are basically, the way I see it, burning the milk from the butter while leaving this crazy good nutty flavor. I promise you’re going to love this Apple Spice Cake with Brown Butter Frosting.Print
