Apple Cinnamon Muffin Cake

Happy Sunday! Everyone enjoying their weekend? Mine's been pretty great so far. :-)

On Sundays I like to make a little something that I can munch on throughout the week and today's recipe will be breakfast all week, I'm sure!

This recipe came from Christy @ The Girl Who Ate Everything.
Her recipe is for muffins, but I only have one 12 cup muffin pan and didn't feel like waiting for two batches to be done, so I threw the batter in a greased cake pan and voila! Muffin cake! Yummm.

Here's the good stuff:

You will need:
1.5 cups of sugar
2 eggs
1 cup of oil- canola or vegg.
1 tbs vanilla

Cream all the ingredients above together in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, combine:
3 cups flour
1tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon (I did 2 tsp, cuz I'm like that)

Peel, Core and Chop apple- you'll need about 3 cups.
I used a giant Fiji and it was just about right.

Combine your dry and wet ingredients and then fold in your apples. Your batter will be VERY thick- it's okay, the apple will add some moisture.
Either spread in a 13x9 cake pan, or fill muffin tins 3/4 way full.
Sprinkle the top of the batter with brown sugar and some nutmeg.

Throw in a preheated 350* oven and try to be patient as your kitchen begins to smell like Hobby Lobby during Christmas-time.

I did not time mine, sorry. If you're doing muffins, it's 20-24mins. I just kept an eye on mine and removed it when I inserted a knife in the middle and it came out clean.

All golden and crispy.

Crunchy top, soft apples, mmmm. I'm going back
for another slice.

Enjoy this in your Brown Bag Lunch this week!


  1. Your apple cake looks delicious. I just took an apple cake out of the oven. I baked it in a loaf pan and dropped it. My apple cake is in the trash now. Sad :( Yours looks great. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  2. That looks just yummy. Can't wait to read more.

  3. Hi, I'm over from SIS. This apple cake looks heavenly and I can't wait to try it! Thanks for the great recipe!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! How has it never occurred to me to make a cake from muffin mix? Genius and it seems so much simpler. Can't wait to read more from you!

  5. Oh my. Your blog makes me hungry. Why do I have to live so far away from love food and love trying what people make.....SOUL FOOD MATES! Haha!

    Thans for sharing your delicious recipe!

    Get Up & Go

  6. Oooooh, that sounds so perfect with a glass of milk (and a cup of coffee!) for breakfast! I'll try the recipe with wholewheat flour, it's all I ever bake with, and let you know how it goes! Were there any nuts in your recipe? I'd be tempted to throw in a handful of toasted walnuts...

  7. Yummy! Although I must say, it wouldn't last more than a few days around me. ;) Thanks for sharing on Crazy Sweet Tuesday! :)
