Okay, so this isn’t a waffle recipe, or a coffee recipe. But this recipe is one of my favorite fall go-tos for cozy, cinnamon apple deliciousness.
If you’re anything like Nadine and Daniel in my Scholastic book, Pumpkin Spice Up Your Life, you love fun fall-ish activities, like apple picking.

So here is a recipe for all of you apple-picking readers out there, who come home after a day of hayrides and apple cider with bushels and bushels of fresh-picked apples in tow.
“You’re the Apple of My Eye” Cake Recipe
2 cups raw apples, sliced and peeled
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 Tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 Tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tsp. baking soda
1 cup flour
1/2 Tsp. salt
Optional ingredients: 1/2 cup raisins, walnuts, and pecans
First, heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Slice and peel your apples. Tart apples work best for this recipe, like green apples or Mcintosh reds (like the ones I used).
Break the egg over the apples and mix.
Next, stir in the sugar, oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and raisins and/or nuts.
Don’t beat the mixture!
Instead, stir gently until the mixture is moist.
Now, fold in your dry ingredients.
Spray an 8×8 square pan or 9-inch round pan with cooking spray, and then line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
Pour the mixture into the pan.
Bake the cake for around 45 minutes. Serve the cake warm or cool.
If you want, drizzle some warm caramel sauce over the top for an extra cozy, ooey-gooey treat!
Finally, cut a slice and enjoy it with your favorite fall coffee, apple cider, or hot cocoa!
