Celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week with an Apple Dapple Cake

The end of the school year is almost here. My son’s last day is in less than a month! I can’t believe it. To let our kid’s teacher’s know just how much we appreciate them for their hard work during the year, there’s a national PTA Teacher Appreciation Week next week, May 7 – 11. Why not give your kid’s teacher an apple baked in a sweet treat like this cute Apple Dapple Cake shown above.
Here’s the recipe. Your kids can even help cook it!

Tree Top Apple-Dapple Cake

Ingredients for Cake

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup Tree Top Apple Sauce
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups finely chopped apples

Ingredients for Glaze

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Stir in apples.

Spread the batter in a greased and floured 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes.

For the glaze, combine the brown sugar, butter, and milk in a small saucepan. Cook and stir until bubbly and all of the sugar is dissolved. Cool slightly. Drizzle warm over cake when it has cooled for 5 minutes, so it can seep into the cake and keep it moist and completely irresistible.
