Today I am bringing you another fall inspired recipe. I have made this Apple Orchard Snack Cake a couple times now and love it every time. I originally got this recipe from Christy over at a Southern Plate last year. The first time I saw this cake and saw the ingredients I knew i had to make it.
I thought the kids would love it since it was made with graham cracker crumbs and apples. I didn't have any graham cracker crumbs on hand, but I did have regular graham crackers. So I just crushed those up to make two cups. Buying a whole box of graham crackers is so much cheaper anyhow. I can get a whole box at Walmart for $1.10.
This cake is so super moist and the apples are delicious. My oldest and youngest sons love this cake, Mackenzie not so much. She liked the cake but did not care for the apples. The little girl I watch named Grace is now a big fan of the cake as well. Grace even helped me mix everything up, so I think we have a future chef on our hands.
This is a perfect cake for Fall and I love that it is flour less. I was thinking maybe next time I might buy the cinnamon graham crackers in place of regular. We will see I always forget and end up grabbing the regular ones. I highly recommend this cake maybe you have a few apples lying around that need to be used up. This would be perfect for that.
Here is my helper Gracie mixing up all the ingredients.
and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
Gracie's favorite place when I am baking anything is right in front of the oven, she will tell me "light light".
