Apple Cinnamon Cake ~ a twist on zucchini bread and cobbler!

I get to work today and my cooks are trying to make something of this mushy apple cobbler they’ve been trying to use out.  Trying to sell it as cobbler just isn’t working ~ looking at it leaves something to be desired.  So I get to thinking; what can I do with this?  So before 9:30 in the morning it comes to me ~ a cake!  There is nothing wrong with it ~ it just looks like mushy canned pie filling and I’m not baking and slicing pies today so cake it is.  Well, now I need a recipe.  Flip through the books and find a bananna bread ~ maybe that will work ~ mushy banannas ~ mushy apple cobbler filling …. sounds like about the right consistancy to me …. ok, no shortning.  I get to looking some more and come to a zucchini bread recipe … pehaps this will work.  Indeed it did ~ not too sweet, dense like a quick bread but moist like a cake. This would have made a great bread too, but cake goes better on the buffet so cake it is!

Apple Cinnamon Cake

  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tbs Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 3/4 Cups Vegetable Oil
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Cups Apple Cobbler or Pie Filling

Combine first 6 ingredients.  Mix together oil, eggs, and vanilla.  Add to dry ingredients stir just until moistened.  Add apple filling mixing until combined. Pour into 2 ~ 9 inch square pans and bake until toothpick in center comes out clean.  350 degrees for 35-45 minutes should do the trick.  Once cool add some icing if desired.  I used a simple powdered sugar and milk with a dash of cinnamon glaze.  Use your favorite ~ I’m sure cream cheese icing would be yummy too.

Hope you enjoy the recipe ~ Get inspired to use your favorite pie filling or create something new! ~ Kimberly
