Spiced apple pie cake recipe & $25 Hodgson Mill giveaway #GRAINHoliday



As part of the Hodgson Mill “Have a GRAIN Holiday” recipe contest I’ve made a scrumptious spiced apple pie cake recipe and want to share it with y’all.

My family usually has a big Christmas morning brunch before opening gifts. We have ham, eggs, bacon, hashbrown casserole or fried potatoes, biscuits and gravy and my Nana makes me and KC our favorite sausage cake. I’m adding this breakfast spiced apple pie cake recipe to my Christmas morning meal routine. Is this cake a dessert or is it breakfast? I say it’s both. The scent and taste of apple pie (apple and cinnamon) always makes me feel all warm and toasty on the coldest of winter days so I hope this spiced apple pie cake recipe brings you a little warmth to your table this holiday season.

4 teaspoons melted butter

3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon milk

equipment used:

If you want the optional brown sugar crumb topping (I recommend this and the optional glaze) you need to mix the 1 Tablespoon flour, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, pinch of salt and 4 teaspoons melted butter together in a small bowl. Once you have the apple pie cake batter poured in to the 4 ramekins you can top each cake with a portion of the brown sugar crumb mix.

Bake the cakes in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean. Once you remove the baked cakes from the oven let them cool a few minutes. While they are cooling whisk together the 4 Tablespoons powdered sugar and the 1 Tablespoon of milk in another bowl to make the glaze. Top the cakes with the glaze and enjoy while they are still warm.
