What do you need to prepare Apple Cinnamon Roll Cake?

  • APPLE CINNAMON ROLL CAKE:
  • 3 cups All purpose flour
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoon Unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup Diced apples
  • 2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup Light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ground cinnamon
  • VANILLA GLAZE:
  • 2 cups Powdered sugar
  • 4-5 teaspoon Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

How to prepare Apple Cinnamon Roll Cake?

First, mix diced apples and cornstarch and set it aside. Then combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt, add milk, eggs and vanilla and beat until it´s combined.  After that, stir in 4 tablespoons of melted butter and fold in apples. Next, pour the batter into a greasing 9 x 13 inch pan. Meanwhile, beat 1 cup of softened butter, light brown sugar and cinnamon.

When it´s well combined, drop it over the cake batter and use a knife to make swirls. The cake should be baked at 350 F, for 60 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out dry. Then, whisk powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until they become smooth and drizzle over the warm cake.

Instead of vanilla glaze, you can make cream cheese frosting, if you prefer it.   Yes, it´s this easy to make an absolutely perfect cake.

You can find more details and the list of necessary ingredients with quantities in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Notes:

You can add walnuts to the brown sugar and instead of vanilla glaze, you can make cream cheese frosting, if you prefer it.

If you prefer sour apples – you can use granny smith and if you prefer sweeter – golden delicious. I used golden delicious.

This cake is wonderful. My grandson and I made it today. We halved the recipe (a little math excercise) and added English walnuts to the brown sugar. Easy to make. Will be making it again!
