Recipe by Jinglebells
"A buttery white cake that comes together in minutes but tastes like you spent all day making it. Adding apples and cinnamon with brown sugar in layers makes this cake into an autumn delight. A scoop of ice cream is especially good with this cake."

I'm pleased to be the first to review this recipe, because it is a winner. One chopped apple will reward you with a moist cake loaded with cinnamon, brown sugar and sweet apple flavors. Next time, I will bake in an 8"x4" pan, as I would have liked a little taller slice, but that's purely aesthetics, nothing to do with taste. Jinglebells, thanks for sharing your recipe. This one's going into my Favorites folder.
I baked for a full 40 minutes, it looked great and my toothpick came out clean, but 10 minutes later, the cake deflated and it was completely raw inside!
I made two batches of this recipe. One I made just as written and it was delicious! The second one I made exactly as written with one substitution: I used 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce in place of the butter. It too was absolutely delicious and the butter (and all those extra calories) was not missed one little bit. So I give this two thumbs up whichever way you choose to make it, but I will be making it with the apple sauce to keep it healthy and light but just as delicious!! If you want to take this recipe uptown just a bit, add some chopped walnuts - yum!!
This was a very good cake! Made it exactly as directed, only I used a smaller loaf pan. The cake was very moist, and tastes even better the next day. Thanks for the recipe!
yummy cake! I reduced the brown sugar to 3 tbsps and the white sugar to 1/2 cup, the cake was sweet enough. Enjoyed by my sons and their friends as a snack. Mine took 45 minutes to bake.
*Note to self, bake 5 minutes longer next time, gooey spot under the apples*
Took a little longer than it said but well worth the wait. Middle of August and so ready to bring in Fall. The perfect cake to do just that!
I made this exactly as directed and had to bake it for 47 minutes. I looked at it at 30 minutes and I did not even bother to test it. At 40 minutes a toothpick came out with batter on it. It was very easy to make but I only gave it four stars since I found it a little dry. That could be from 47 minutes in the oven or that fact that I used a metal pan instead of glass. I will make this again and might change up the recipe a little. It's a great base recipe because it is simple and quick. I can see adding walnuts, raisins, maybe some apple sauce in the middle with the apple chunks, etc. Overall it's a keeper!
Made this last night, exactly per the recipe. Read all the reviews and appreciated the hints.
It is very good. Nice texture,spongy consistency and good flavor. Since all my loaf recipes call for an hour of baking, mine was in the oven for an hour and came out exactly like the picture - it raised to the top of the pan and didn't deflate. I chopped up the apples in my Pampered Chef chopper so my apple pieces were very small/tiny. I also folded the flour mixture into the creamed mixture with a spatula (not the electric mixture), added the milk as instructed and folded that in. As best as I can describe its doneness is when the cake part that seeps through the top is tan and has a dry look to it.
I also learned that I should have left a margin of cake batter between the brown sugar mix and the cake pan, otherwise, if the brown sugar seeps out on the sides, it turns very hard. Love this recipe.
