Simple Cinnamon Apple Cake

READY IN: 40mins
SERVES: 16-20
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 9x13 inch pan.I also line it with parchment paper.
  • Now ,thinly slice the apples and soak them in cold water with some lemon juice squeezed in, to prevent discoloration. Set aside.
  • Next, whisk the eggs until frothy.Add the sugar and continue whisking until fairly creamy ( or until sugar dissolves and blends in).Add the salt ,cinnamon and baking soda.Then,mix in the sour cream,buttermilk,and orange juice (if using any).
  • Gradually, add the flour to the mixture and mix until incorporated (do not overmix).If there are any lumps,mush them with a fork against the sides of the bowl.Gently fold in the raisins at this point,if using any.
  • Finally, pour the batter into the greased pan and line the top with the apple slices in any pattern you prefer.
  • Bake for 40-45 minute or until tester comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool and cut into squares.Serve.
  • NOTE: This cake tastes better after it stands for a while.
