King Of Fall Desserts!

I can honestly and unequivocally say, that this cake is the king of kings in desserts.
I don't see how anyone can turn this cake away, it is so delicious and downright fun to make. So grab the kiddies and start baking. You and your family won't regret it. Trust me.


Apple Fritter Cake

Filling
2 c. Apples, chopped (approximately 2 medium apples)
1/3 c. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
2 tbsp. Cornstarch
2 tsp. Water
1/2 c. Brown sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon 

Cake
1/3 c. Butter, room temperature
3/4 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Applesauce
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c. Flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
1 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Salt.
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 c. Plain yogurt

Glaze
2 c. Powdered sugar
1/3 c. Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla

To make the filling. In a saucepan, add apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch and water. Simmer over medium-low heat until apples are cooked and soft and the juices are thick. About 5-6 minutes. Set aside to cool. While the apples are cooling, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon and set that aside too.
To make the cake. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray 9X13 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Then add applesauce, vanilla and eggs. Mix until well incorporated. In another bowl, mix all the dry ingredients until well combined. Then add the dry ingredients and yogurt alternately to the applesauce mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. Then carefully spread the apples on the batter. Sprinkle 2/3 of the brown sugar/cinnamon on the apples. Pour and spread the remaining batter over the apples covering completely. Then sprinkle remaining brown sugar/cinnamon. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the center of the cake is set.
After removing from the oven, poke with a butter all over the cake. Pour and spread the glaze over the warm cake.
Allow the cake to cool before serving. About 20-30 minutes. Enjoy!
