Easy, Delicious and Simple: White Cake Recipe with Applesauce Topping

Can’t help but love yummy food.  Decided to use up all the apples that are starting to have a few too many bruises here and there to make up and sauce.  Along with a homemade white cake that I love.  Thought I would share the recipe. My son claims its like eating a ‘cookie-dough’ cake.

Ingredients for White Cake

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk

Ingredients for Applesauce Topping

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 5-6 beautiful apples, macintosh, jazz (I use a combo)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove, nutmeg (you decide)

Directions for Applesauce Topping (make 1st)

  1. Peel, core & cut apples into chunks.
  2. In a medium saucepan & starting on a higher heat, drop in butter. Don’t burn but when melted, add in apples and sugar. Bring up to almost “a boil”.  Cover and let simmer on a low heat.
  3. The apples will become super soft, so you can break them apart with a fork, creating a hearty applesauce.
  4. Once white cake has been baked, serve as topping or side sauce.

Directions for White Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Finally stir in the milk until batter is smooth. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch.

This recipe is simple, easy & no fuss. Plus, its super delicious.  My 8 year old tells me its like eating cookie dough cake with apples and cinnamon.
