This was a delicious apple cake that Ania brought to one of our meetings.

Cinnamon Apple Cake
made by Ania

2 apples, preferably Gala
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 eggs
2 pkgs. (8oz each) cream cheese, at room temp
2 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, at room temp
5 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1 Tbs. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat 2 9″ round cake pans with cooking spray.  Peel, core and chop 1 1/2 apples.

On medium speed, beat cake mix, applesauce, eggs, 1/3 cup water, 2 oz cream cheese and 2 tsp cinnamon until thickened and smooth.  Stir in 1 cup apples.  Divide between pans.  Bake 28-30 mins until pick comes out clean.  Cool on racks.

On medium speed beat butter and remaining cream cheese until fluffy, 2 mins.  On low gradually beat in sugar, 2 tbs water, vanilla and remaining cinnamon until smooth.  Refrigerate until firm enough to spread, 30 mins.

Place one cake layer on plate; spread with 1 cup frosting.  Press remaining chopped apples into frosting.  Top with remaining cake layer.  Spread cake with remaining frosting.  Garnish with remaining apple half sliced thinly.  Chill before serving.
