Gooey Apple Cake
This gooey apple cake tastes amazing! The stickiness of the cake, topped with the cream cheese layer, and the crunchiness of the edges makes this one delicious cake. What a great dessert perfect for the fall season.
Look at this delicious layer of cheesecake. The cheesecake layer gets a little crunchy on top but is so creamy underneath as you can see!
This gooey apple cake recipe is from one of my dear friends that I met on Pinterest, Nancy Morton over at Baking Blond. Here is the link to her Fresh Apple Gooey Cake. Make sure to check out her blog for totally homemade recipes from scratch! Nancy has some great recipes that you are sure to love! There are some Apple Orchard Cinnamon Rolls that are to die for too!
Seriously, I am an inside piece of cake kind of gal and the edges of this cake are amazing! The edges are both crunchy and sticky and I found myself eating mostly the edge pieces which I rarely do. Serving this cake cold is best but it’s great served warm too!
This cake is definitely so moist and chewy. I’ve made this gooey apple cake three times in the past three weeks.
Every bite of this gooey apple cake is loaded with pieces of apples and tasty bits of pecans. You could change it up a bit and add walnuts instead of the pecans too.
