We love the indulgent, fruity taste of this sweet and cinnamony apple cake, and we adore its simplicity. Crisp apple slices are tossed with brown sugar and plenty of cinnamon before they bake in a moist cake batter. Apples offer natural sweetness and pair beautifully with cinnamon. Comforting apple pie and yummy cake in a simple, crowd-friendly dessert casserole…sweet, satisfying and super delicious!
