When you don’t feel like rolling out pie crusts or you just want to change things up, the family will love this easy dessert – fresh, thinly sliced apples tossed in butter and cinnamon, baked into a tender cake and served with vanilla ice cream.


  • 9 cups (about 9) Granny Smith or Honey Crisp apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened, divided
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups sifted Swans Down®️ Cake Flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup whole milk


  1. PREHEAT oven to 350℉. Combine apples, 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and cinnamon in a large bowl and toss well. Transfer apples to a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt; mix well and set aside.
  3. CREAM remaining butter and sugar, using a hand mixer, until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time; then add vanilla.
