Pumpkin Apple Cake

Dear blog, I have been neglecting you!  I am very sorry and will try to remedy this.  I have, in fact, been cooking, but just haven't gotten around to posting everything I've cooked!

It's fall (I think - it's hard to tell by looking out the window here!), and that means some of my favorite foods.  Pumpkins and apples just scream autumn to me and they work so well together that I just HAD to mix them up in a cake!


  • 2 c flour
  • 1 t ginger
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 3/4 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t ground allspice
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 t ground cloves
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 c oil
  • 1/3 c molasses
  • 1/2 c apple cider
  • 1/2 large apple, diced
  • 1/2 large apple, sliced thinly
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • dash cinnamon

 Preheat oven to 350.  Mix everything but the last four ingredients in a bowl until the batter is smooth.  Stir in diced apples.  In a small bowl, toss sliced apples with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Grease a 9x9 pan and pour in half of the batter.  Spread the sliced apples over top, then cover with the remaining batter.  Bake 40-50 minutes.


  1. We are headed to the apple orchard this weekend, to pretend its fall here, and I am for sure going to make this when we get back! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Amy, there's an apple orchard? Where? You just made my day!
