Apple Fritter Cake – A Guest Post by Paula from Call Me PMc

Hi friends, I’m Paula, but my friends call me PMc. This is my sweet family. They keep me busy. They make me laugh. They drive me crazy at times! I share it all with you at Call Me PMc where I blog about easy to prepare recipes and menus for busy families, time management and exercise tips, with a little crafts and DIY projects. I would love for you to come visit.
A big thank you to Julie for allowing me to guest post today. Julie is the kind of friend that every person should have. You know when you meet a person you just click with, Julie is that person. Even if we’re miles apart she brightens my day, makes me laugh, and is always there to help. Today I’m sharing an apple cake with you. You see, I love to bake. Love it. I would probably never make real food if I didn’t have too! I saw a version of this cake on Pinterest and tweaked it a little. It was delish! Hope you enjoy it as well!

Apple Fritter Cake inspired by: Nerdy Baker

For filling:
  • 2 c diced apples
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/3 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 5 T water
Additional filling:
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
For cake:
  • 1/3 c butter
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 c sour cream (or buttermilk)
  • 2 c powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 T milk


  • For filling: Combine apples, sugar, water, cinnamon and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce is thickened and the apples are soft. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • For cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch cake pan with non-stick spray. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add applesauce and vanilla and mix until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift the dry ingredients together then add alternately with sour cream (or buttermilk) to sugar and butter mixture. Mix until just combined.
  • Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the cooled apple mixture over the batter and spread as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over apples. Carefully spoon the remaining batter over sugar mixture.
  • Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  • For Glaze: While cake is baking, mix glaze ingredients together. Whisk until completely smooth. When cake is done, immediately pour glaze over hot cake. Allow the glaze to set before cutting cake.
