October, November, and December are my absolute favorite months of the year to whip up baked goods like apple brunch cake. The holidays are right around the corner and fall is in full swing. The leaves are changing colors and I’m starting to crave fall foods and desserts. Of course, crisp apples top the list, but I also love the other season ingredients that come into season during the fall: pumpkin, which can be used in sweet or savory dishes; butternut squash; and tart cranberries. The list goes on and on. And I literally can’t keep up with all the the items I want to bake that are dancing around in my head.

This Granny Smith Apple Brunch Cake is a simple cake that will impress your guests. Think of coffee cake loaded with tart Granny Smith apples and the warm aroma of cinnamon. The crust on the top gets nice and crunchy, while the rest of the cake is soft and tender. It goes perfectly with your morning cup of coffee or topped with some freshly whipped cream for dessert.

Whenever I do any apple baking, I break out my apple corer-peeler-slicer contraption. It is indispensable this time of year. You can peel, core, and slice an apple in mere seconds. It definitely earns a spot in my tiny kitchen. Even though it takes up some valuable cabinet space, it is worth the sacrifice. This recipe only calls for three apples, so you could definitely get away with doing the apple cutting and peeling by hand as well.

Hubby took this to work and it got rave reviews from his coworkers. He has been traveling a LOT for work and is rarely in the office. I’ve received multiple emails from his team saying they miss the baked goods that he usually brings in on a regular basis (I’m sure they miss him being around the office as well!) Whoever you share this with will thank you for bringing a little piece of fall flavors to their mouths.
