What’s better than homemade apple cake? Homemade apple snack cake that’s easy enough for after-school weekday baking, and wholesome enough to eat as an afternoon snack.
For me, September just isn’t complete without something apple-y. When I’m not dipping apple slices in almond butter, I’m usually baking up apples in cake. And, guess what’s even better than homemade apple cake? Homemade apple cake that’s easy enough for after-school weekday baking, and wholesome enough to eat as an afternoon snack.
The thing that I really like about this apple snack cake recipe is that it hits the not-too-sweet sweet spot. This is thanks to the natural sweetness of the apples, which I include in three forms: chopped apple, applesauce, and apple juice. The apple juice is from a company called North Coast and it’s my go-to for flavor and quality. It’s unfiltered, so it has that delicious apple cider vibe, and it’s also certified organic, non-GMO, and made from one ingredient—apples. North Coast also happens to be located in Sebastopol in Sonoma County, which is one of my favorite spots in all of the country. Aaron and I spent a month staying at a little airbnb in Sebastopol when we did our year-long road trip a few years ago and we fell head-over-heels in love with the town and, of course, the incredible produce there.
Most days I enjoy my apple snack cake as-is, but if you want to make it a little extra, it’s particularly awesome topped with homemade coconut whipped cream, chopped fresh apple, and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. For kiddos, I think this is pretty much after-school snack heaven…
