Apple Cinnamon Cake

I have had this recipe  for Apple Cinnamon Cake printed out and ready to be made for years.  I saw this cake with globs of apple pie filling in the middle and it screamed “MAKE ME!!!”  Like many of you, however, I printed the recipe and then it slowly made its way into a pile and then to a shelf and then was forgotten.  Then recently, I made up some apple pie milkshakes (and no, there are no milkshake recipes here, sorry), but I only used about 2 Tbsp of a whole can of apple pie filling.  Suddenly, I remembered this cake.  I dug through a few files, found it, made the cake and then promptly lost the recipe.  Luckily, it was only yesterday and my memory extends that far.

Apple Cinnamon CakeMy family pronounced this cake to be delicious.  I served it with vanilla ice cream, because that is how we roll.  As a breakfast cake, I would probably nix the ice cream, but it would depend on the day.  Considering that last Sunday, I served Root Beer Floats for dinner (and nothing else), I could be swayed to sneak a little ice cream early in the morning.  I could argue that there isn’t any more sugar in Lucky Charms than there is in ice cream.  And milk has protein, right?  I could make a pretty good argument for ice cream in the morning, but before you think I have lost my mind, relax.  I didn’t serve this for breakfast.

Apple Cinnamon CakeSo, about losing that recipe….I have no idea what blog this recipe came from.  I am obviously writing all the instructions from my own head, but I wish I could credit someone with my inspiration and the ingredient list.  I am breaking all of the blogging rules by not giving anyone a shout out.  If I find that missing recipe page, I will edit this post. {Note: I found the recipe! } In the mean time, you need this cake.  Seriously, you NEED this cake.  Fall is just around the corner and that means apples!
