Apple Cream Cake

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour


12-15 servings

"This is the first dessert Mom would make when apples were ready to pick," writes Antoinette Kilhoffer from Ridgeway, Pennsylvania. "One bite of this old-fashioned country cake will have you coming back for more. A boxed cake mix makes it very easy, but it tastes like it's made from scratch."


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 3 cups sliced peeled tart apples
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, optional


  1. Prepare cake batter according to package directions; pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Combine the apples, walnuts, sugar and cinnamon; spoon over batter. Pour cream over the top.
  2. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.

    This desert looked good but the taste was average. I followed the recipe exactly and baked for 60 minutes but it came out heavy and dry. Whipped cream helped but not enough to keep the cake for leftovers.

    I've been using this cake since it first appeared in Quick Cooking magazine years ago. It is always a WOW to everyone and I am still asked for the recipe from newcomers to it!Toni AndersonGommy of 5

    This cake is very easy and tastes great. I made it for a brunch at work, and everyone loved it. Some heated it in microwave, others didn't. The pan was emptied!

    This cake has a really soft crumb and is best when warm.I laid (did not spoon) all the apple slices on top of the cake batter, really pretty, and then sprinkled the walnuts over that and then poured the cream over. When I took the cake out of the oven, the top was perfectly clean... all the apples and walnuts had sunk to the bottom! It still tasted good, but didn't look like the picture at all.

    I have made this twice and have shared the recipe with friends and everyone likes it. It tastes almost like an apple bread pudding. I may try to use a spice cake mix next time for something different.
