Easy Apple Sheet Cake with Brown Sugar Icing
Don’t get me wrong, I love a good layer cake… but sheet cakes are so easy and just as delicious. And while everyone else is in full-force pumpkin mode, I’m still dreaming about apples. Isn’t it funny how everything changes to pumpkin or pumpkin spice on September 1st!?! The whole world goes pumpkin spice crazy! Anyway, y’all, this cake is super easy and just as delicious. It’s a light, crumbly cake with a brown sugar icing that I just love. The brown sugar gives the icing a caramely flavor and a bit of crunch. I’ve been day dreaming about all the other things this icing would be great on.
The cake is great with just about any apple, though I used Granny Smith in this one. I’ll admit that Honey Crisp apples are my absolute favorite. Have you tried them? They’re usually a little more expensive but totally worth it. I just eat them by themselves and go for a less expensive apple for baking – that’s why I think Granny Smiths are perfect! Y’all enjoy!
