One Bowl Apple Cake Recipe

Flip it!

Okay. So it’s not the best looking cake around, but it’s super moist, tasty, and best of all, the perfect thing to make with the kiddos. The ChowPapa’s mama shared this recipe while here helping with Oliver. Because the whole thing can be made in one bowl, she and Isaac were able to whip it up in a snap. This doesn’t have to be a big rainy day baking project—it’s easy enough to make (and clean up!) on a whim. And you’ll still have time to hit the playground.

Your best bet is to prep the apples on your own before you bring your ChowBaby into the kitchen. (Consider peeling them so that you have “ribbons” leftover—they were a hit with Isaac!) Then, bring her in for one bowl measuring and mixing. Bake and enjoy for breakfast, snack or dessert. Have fun!


2 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar (adjust sugar to your liking)
2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
6 medium Gala or Fuji or Honey Crisp apples
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda


Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil. Peel and slice the apples and add to mixture in bowl (coating as you go to keep apples from turning brown.) Mix together the baking soda and flour and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well (best with a fork) until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients. Pour mixture into a greased one 9×13 or two 9″ round pans. Bake for approximately 55 minutes.
