Apple Cake

The Story:

I found this recipe on (great website!) and tweaked it a bit here and there. It has become one of my very favorite desserts to make. It is fast, easy and super yummy! I love to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream that has caramel swirls but I have been known to eat it cold for breakfast too. It works either way. :)

Apple Cake:

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 medium chopped apples
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon

Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon; set aside. In a large bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, and 1 cup of white sugar until smooth. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture, then stir in the apples. Spread the mixture evenly into a 9x13 pan. In a cup or small bowl, stir together the remaining cinnamon and sugar; sprinkle over the top of the bars. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. The finished cake should spring back when lightly touched.
