Just in time for the fall season is this delicious autumnal apple cinnamon cake that is topped with a rich cream cheese frosting and decorated with colorfully themed sprinkles. This is a great baked dessert to bring to a Thanksgiving meal, fall party or even enjoy one night after supper.
This homemade cake features a heavily spiced cake batter complete with aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pecans, allspice and cloves along with applesauce to replicate an apple flavor. Once the cake is baked it is topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting made with butter, cream cheese, vanilla and sugar and decorated with brown, red, yellow and orange sprinkles. The decorations and the rich brown shade of the cake encompass colors reminiscent of the changing fall leaves.
