Apples are delicious, but sometimes you just get tired of pies. Enter this Apple Rum Cake!


  • 3 Medium Apples
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 8 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Spiced Rum
  1. Heat oven to 350F
  2. Coat an 8-inch round pan with spray or butter, then line the bottom with parchment
  3. Melt 1 stick of unsalted butter
  4. Peel, core, and dice three apples
  5. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until fluffy, then whisk in the melted butter, brown sugar, rum, and vanilla
  7. Add the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined
  8. Add apples and fold until just combined
  9. Fill pan and smooth top
  10. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean; about 40 minutes
  11. Cool 15 minutes before removing from pan
  12. Dust with powdered sugar and serve

I had three leftover apples that Little Man decided he no longer enjoyed, and they were going soft before I could eat them. I then thought about this recipe, and pulled it out. I wish I had Smell-O-Vision, because this cake smells so absolutely delicious when it is baking in the oven. I’ve served this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or with whipped cream on top, but make it your own. I would be interested in trying some caramel drizzled over the top as well.
