This is a simple recipe for a yummy apple snack cake filled with diced apples and cinnamon and it gets topped off with butterscotch chips. This is really quick to come together and get in the oven and it comes out moist from the apples and the oil. The aroma throughout the house while it is baking is very enticing and smells like just like autumn. The flavor combination of the apples, cinnamon and butterscotch chips is so tasty!
Butterscotch Apple Cake: (recipe courtesy Sugar Plum)
-2 1/2 cups flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-3/4 teaspoon salt
-1 cup oil
-1 cup granulated sugar
-2 large eggs, room temperature
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-3 cups diced peeled apple
-2 cups butterscotch chips
Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 13x9-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla for 2-3 minutes or until well combined and doubled in volume. Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in apple until combined. Batter will be thick.
Spread batter into prepared baking dish. Evenly sprinkle with butterscotch chips. Bake 45-50 minutes or until well risen, golden brown, and cake pulls away from edges of the dish. Cool on a wire rack.
