Washington State Apple Bowl, Apple Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Apple Cake, baked in a Washington State Apple Bowl.
Apple Bowl Cake.

This is a fun little baker bowl found, while out thrifting one day. I love apple cakes, and the size of this baker works very well for a small family. Plus it will be very simple to change out the fruit and spice for just about any fruit in season.

I will be honest, the instructions given make it difficult to mix cake batter and might possibly persuade you to not make this easy and delicious cake again. So I took the liberty of giving directions that will make this cake, easy to stir up at a moment's notice. And especially when you have a few apples that have passed their prime for fresh eating.

Apple Cake
adapted from: the back of the apple baking pan
350-degree oven

3-4 apples
1 c sugar
1 egg
1/4 c butter, melted and cooled
2 t vanilla
1 c flour 
1/2 t soda
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon

Peel and slice apples, combine with sugar in a large bowl. Let juice for about 5 minutes.

Melt butter, set aside to cool.

When apples have juiced a bit, add melted butter, egg, vanilla and all dry ingredients (flour through cinnamon).

Stir well until combined and apple slices are evenly mixed throughout the batter.

Spoon batter into the baker bowl (or a 9-inch square pan or deep pie plate) bake 40-45 minutes or until done in your oven.

  1. There is a recipe from Cooking Light for apple cake that is absolutely delicious. It sounds similar to yours.

  3. This cake sounds great and I love that baking dish. --Rocquie

  4. Oh YUM! Does this look good for a cold winters night! I really like the pie platter too!

  5. Thank you for contributing to Motivation Monday!

  6. What a fabulous baking pan, Melynda! I love finds like this. Your recipe sounds fantastic. I have a serious weakness for apple cake and it's really making my mouth water! Thank you for sharing with us at the Hearth and Soul hop.

  7. What a cute dish! And delicious cake.

  8. Iam looking for a recipe i lost over 30 years ago. Washington apple cake. Did not peal apples, had brown sugar and used cream and butter to top and serve. Cooked in an 8x8 pan

    1. I wish I could be of help, but the topping is what is throwing me. The apples and brown sugar are easy enough to replace in any apple cake of your liking, but the topping is going to take a bit of investigation. I will see what I can come up with, tell me, was it a pouring over the top addition or more like a frosting? Thanks for stopping by!
