Apple Fritter Cake is moist and bursting with flavor. It’s sweet, buttery and filled with caramel apples and cinnamon. Top it off with a sugary glaze and you have a cake that tastes just like an apple fritter!
Apple Fritter Cake
If you love apple desserts just as much as I do then brace yourself for this cake. This cake packs all the flavor of homemade apple fritters in each bite. It’s moist, fluffy, and delicious!
This cake is very simple to prepare, a basic batter is layered between a luscious filling of cinnamon and sautéed apples.
While the cake is still warm, I poured a glaze over the cake. If you pour it on while the cake is warm it will seep down into the cake just like the glaze on fried apple fritters does.
I love a gooey cake and this cake was perfect!

Pink Lady and Granny Smith apples are the best for baking. However, but you can choose any kind of apple that you like as long as it has a firm texture and a good bit of acidity.
What I used to make this cake
Store it in an airtight container on the counter for 5 to 6 days or in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.
Yes, it freezes very well. You can freeze the whole cake or freeze it in individual slices. Either way wrap the cake in plastic wrap then foil.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary based on products used.

- 2 cup apples diced
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg freshly grated
- 2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 5 Tablespoon water
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 large eggs
- 2 and ¼ cup flour sifted then measured
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup sour cream or buttermilk
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 6 Tablespoon milk
- Combine apples, sugar, water, cinnamon and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce is thickened and the apples are soft. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 inch cake pan with non-stick spray. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add applesauce and vanilla and mix until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Sift the dry ingredients together then add alternately with sour cream (or buttermilk) to sugar and butter mixture. Mix until just combined.
- Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. Spoon the cooled apple mixture over the batter and spread as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over apples. Carefully spoon the remaining batter over sugar mixture.
- Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean or with dry crumbs on it.
- While cake is baking, mix glaze ingredients together. Whisk until completely smooth. When cake is done, immediately pour glaze over hot cake. Allow the glaze to set before cutting the cake.
