Have you heard? I wrote another cookbook! It’s called Sheet Pan Sweets and it hits the shelves October 4th! It’s choc full of recipes to fill your dessert table and bake sale cravings, from sheet cakes to rolled and layered cakes, from cookies and bars to pies and other fruit forward desserts, and there’s even a chapter full of breakfast and brunch goodies, to boot.
Want a sneak peek? HERE YOU GO! This Apple Fritter Cake comes from the breakfast and breads section of the book, and it’s the perfect way to use up all of those apples you hauled home from your recent trip to the apple orchard (when those first hints of fall arrive, it’s time to throw on that flannel – actual temperature be damned – and haul out to the apple farm stat, yes?!).
This cake is dense yet bouncy, studded with pockets of fresh apple and cinnamon and bathed in a milky, maple-y glaze. It’s an homage to the best thing in the case at your local donut shop – the apple fritter, of course – and also to my Grandpa Gene, who loved them so much he’d practically stamp his name on the apple fritter in the big box of donuts he’d bring over for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. This recipe will give you that perfect apple fritter essence without frying, and double bonus? There’ll be more than enough for everyone.
