As fall is approaching, my husband loves it when I bake seasonal desserts like peach cobbler and apple crisp. I found this recipe for apple fritter cake so I thought I would try something different. Let me say, this might be a new favorite in our house! Eat it fresh out of the oven or warm it up the next day, absolutely delicious. If you’re not a fan of apples you can swap out with peaches, blueberries, cherries or your favorite fruit.

Batter Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 6 small apples cored, peeled and diced

Topping Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Glaze Ingredients

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. In large mixing bowl combine flour, salt, sugar baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
  2. Slowly add in melted butter.
  3. Pour batter into a greased 9×13 pan.
  4. Spread apples evenly over batter.
  5. Drop scoops of topping evenly over apples (it will be thick). Use a knife to drag the topping in a swirling motion throughout the apples and batter.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for at least 40 minutes. If the apples start browning, place foil over top.
  7. Remove from oven and let sit 10 to 20 minutes.
  8. Pour glaze over the cake.
  9. Enjoy!

The recipe recommends Braeburn, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Honey Crisp, and Macintosh apples, although you can try any type. This is also a wonderful way to get your kids to enjoy fresh fruit!

For a bite size snack, mix your ingredients as above and then line cupcake pans with paper liner. Fill halfway with batter and then layer the apple. Add a small amount of the topping and swirl together. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool 10 to 20 minutes and drizzle with glaze!
