A cake? A muffin? A muffin with a cake-like existential crisis? Or is it the other way around? Maybe it should seek therapy.
In my quest to bake through Baking…From My Home to Yours, long-after the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) group finished, I can check another recipe off my list. Dorie Greenspan created the Apple Nut Muffin Cake when one day she was making muffins and decided dump the batter in a cake pan and call it a day. I briefly toyed with the idea of making muffins instead of the cake as some sort of poetic finish to the whole thing. After I finished musing, I baked the cake subbing whole-wheat pastry flour for the all-purpose and dried cranberries for the raisins (Paul doesn’t like raisins!).
The flavor of the cake reminded me of apple-cinnamon oatmeal and therefore I believe a healthy way to have cake for breakfast. The recipe was hosted by Katrina of Baking and Boys last October. You can find the recipe HERE.

Call it whatever you want. All I know is that it looks super delicious!
I just love that Paul is taking the photos for you, I wonder if I could talk my husband into that 🙂 I can’t remember how I felt about this one, but the way you describe it, I’m positive I should have liked it!
This looks delicious! I remember making this one, and that it was easy and yummy. I’m with you on your post-BFMHTY quest, as are Nancy and Margaret, so you’re not alone!
Ooh, your cake looks really good! If I could “afford” to, I’d make it again.
And by the way, I used to consider you the ice cream queen. Can’t wait to see what you come up with! 😉
