This guilt-free dessert is everything! It is not overwhelmingly sweet, it’s just perfect! The three awesome parts of this dessert are the filling, cake, and glaze. It might look a bit too much but trust me it’s easy peasy.
FOR THE FILLING:
1 heaping cup of sliced apples (cored and quartered and then sliced)
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
small pinch freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons water
1/2 cup brown sugar (I used a 1/4 cup each of dark and light)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
FOR THE CAKE:
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup Greek yogurt (you could use plain yogurt as well or sour cream)
FOR THE GLAZE:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 tablespoons milk
TO MAKE APPLE FRITTER CAKE
To start, we make the filling:
Step 1: In a small saucepan, combine the apples, sugar, water, cinnamon, and cornstarch.
Step 2: Cook the apple mix on low heat for about 5 to 7 minutes while constantly stirring until the sauce thickened and the apples are a little tender. Then, set the apple mix aside.
Step 3: Mix the brown sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl until well combined.
Now the for the cake:
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Then, grease and flour a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and set aside.
Step 3: In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
Step 4: Mix the applesauce and vanilla.
Step 5: Then, add in the eggs one at a time, beating every after each addition. Or break the eggs in a separate bowl a piece at a time to avoid using a bad egg.
Step 6: Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Step 7: Add in the dry ingredients to the batter in three separate parts alternately with the yogurt in two parts. Begin and end with the flour mixture.
Step 8: Beat the batter until just combined. make sure to not overbeat.
Step 9: Place half of the batter into the prepared pan.
Step 10: Take spoonfuls of the cooled apple mixture over the batter, spreading as evenly as you can.
Step 11: Then, sprinkle over 2/3 of the brown sugar-cinnamon mixture.
Step 12: Top with the remaining batter, then, sprinkle on top the rest of the brown sugar-cinnamon mix.
Step 13: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 45 to 55 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Finally for the glaze:
Step 1: Combine the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk in a bowl until you get your desired consistency.
Step 2: Pour the glaze over the hot cake. You might need to pick the cake up and tilt it to evenly spread the glaze as evenly as you can.
Step 3: Allow the cake to sit for the glaze to set.
