For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups peeled, cored, and diced apples (about 2 medium-sized apples)

For the Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350Β°F (175Β°C). Grease and flour a 9Γ—9-inch square baking pan or a similar-sized baking dish.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Set this dry mixture aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and 1 cup of granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry mixture. Mix until just combined; do not overmix.
  6. Gently fold in the diced apples until they are evenly distributed in the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it out evenly.
  8. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon for the topping.
  9. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the top of the cake batter.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the cake is lightly browned on top.
  11. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 15-20 minutes.
  12. Once the cake has cooled slightly, you can slice and serve it. It can be served warm or at room temperature.

This apple cinnamon white cake is perfect for dessert or even as a sweet treat with your afternoon tea or coffee. The combination of apples and cinnamon is classic and comforting, making it a wonderful choice for fall or any time of the year. Enjoy!
