It’s important to have a few desserts in your arsenal of recipes that don’t take a lot of time or ingredients to put together. And I am here to tell you, this Gingerbread Apple Pie Cake recipe needs to be added to your stockpile.

The best part about this cake is that it is incredibly quick and easy to make – all you need is a box of gingerbread mix, about 3 apples, some brown sugar and spices, and a little butter and flour. It takes about 10 minutes to put the whole thing together and get into the oven.

Start by making the gingerbread cake mix according to the box directions. I find the box mix to be a bit on the mild side so I like to add some additional spices to bump up the flavor.

Pour the prepared cake mix into a prepared 8”x8” cake pan and set it to the side. Toss the sliced apples in a bowl with some lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Cut the apples on the thin side – about 1/8” thick. This just ensures that the apples bake up tender in the cake.

For the butter crumble topping, add flour, brown sugar, salt and a stick of butter to a bowl.  Using a fork or a pastry blender, work ingredients together until combined and has a crumbly consistency. It’s okay if you leave a few bigger pieces of butter in the mix.

To assemble the cake, pour the coated apples on top of the prepared cake mix and top with the butter crumble topping.  Pop that cake in the oven for about 30 to 35 minutes.  It doesn’t take long for your kitchen to start smelling like fall with all those delicious spices filling the air.

This Gingerbread Apple Pie cake is simply delicious and not overly sweet. It’s perfect in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea.  You can even top the cake with a little sweetened whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or even a little maple glaze.

It’s also the perfect sweet treat to throw together over the holidays or when you have guests. The ginger spice in this cake is not overwhelming at all but if you aren’t a huge fan of gingerbread, you can easily swap it out for a spice cake or buttery vanilla mix instead. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

Enjoy!
