My grandma's recipe for apple snack cake is so simple and easy to make, you'll be surprised how super moist and delicious it is! It requires only a handful of pantry ingredients, some fresh apples, and ONE BOWL to make.


Units Scale
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 lbs. apples (approx) peeled and thinly sliced, i.e. MacIntosh*
  • Cinnamon for dusting
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)



  • I'd recommend MacIntosh apples for this recipe, but any apple variety works. For instructions on how to peel and slice the apples, read the information in the blog post above.
  • Baking times can vary depending on the type of pan. For metal pans, check doneness after 50-55 minutes. For glass baking pans, check after 60-65 minutes.
