|Justin’s Apple Cinnamon White Cake
Perfect fall coffee cake! Warm cinnamon and juicy apples make it special.
|Loaded with fall flavors
It was originally posted by member Justin S. who makes this all the time. He was kind enough to share the recipe with group members, but he said he didn’t recall where he first found it.
The cake smells wonderful baking. Only thing I did differently was used 1 1/2 apples in the batter but placed thinly sliced apples in the center along with the cinnamon sugar.
I used Granny Smiths, but I guess any apple will do. I’d like to try it again with a sweeter, juicier apple as I think the flavor would be improved. Justin didn’t say which variety he used, so I went to one of my standby cooking apples. I really prefer Rome but my store didn’t have them, hence the Granny

The cake is very sweet and perfect with coffee. I didn’t serve this warm, but I imagine it’s just marvelous if you serve it that way.
Justin’s Apple Cinnamon White Cake
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1-2 apples, peeled & chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
In another bowl, mix the flour and baking powder; set aside.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
Stir in the flour, mixing well. Add the milk and beat until smooth. Fold in the apples.
Spread 1/2 of the batter in the pan. Top with 1/2 of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Swirl through batter. At this point, I added a layer of thinly sliced apple as well.
Spread remaining batter over the top. Top with remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
May either be served warm or completely cooled.
About 12 servings.
