School is good for one thing though: it means FALL IS COMING!!

(Collective yays ensue)

I love everything fall. Who doesn’t?? Cold, pants, sweaters, boots, apples, cinnamon…. Ahhhhh. I think those last two might have been the result of me staring at the picture above, because it’s not like you can’t have apples or cinnamon in the summer. But still! It’s FALL.

This cake (which I had originally intended to be soft-batch cookies, but see how that turned out) is super fall-y and delicious. I mean fall-y like the season, obviously. Not like it makes you trip and land painfully on the ground (though warning: it might actually make you do just that) I mean autumn-y. Understand??

AUTUMN-Y!!!

Umm… yeah. So. Let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

(By the way, you only need one bowl for this cake! Yay for less dishes!)

Apple Cinnamon Cake 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup organic sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • optional: pinch each nutmeg and powdered ginger
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced/chopped (I used Pink Lady)

Whew! That’s a lot! Directions: Preheat oven to 350º. Grease two 8×6 pans and set aside. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir well. Add remaining wet ingredients, including chopped apple, and stir until just mixed. Divide batter evenly between two pans and bake for 20 minutes.


 

Anyways! Easy right? Good, because I need to go to bed now.
