Tis' the season for apple recipes! Fall is one of my favorite foodie times of the year. Slow cooker recipes are everywhere, as well as soups and pumpkin recipes! Love it all!

Today's recipe is a delicious Apple Cinnamon Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting. The majority of the time I make my cakes from scratch, but after I heard about the new scratch baking mixes from Immaculate Baking, I knew I'd have to give them a try! Immaculate Baking launched their new dry baking mixes using only wholesome, simple, delicious ingredients, and offering baking options ranging from all natural, organic and gluten free! Totally the same quality as their refrigerated cookies! I also love that they don't contain any artificial preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. These products will fit right it when I need a cake mix for a new recipe. They work and taste just as great as scratch mixes!

I didn't make the cake according to package directions for this recipe, but it turned out wonderful! The pieces of apple make the cake so moist and the hint of cinnamon adds a wonderful flavor! I topped it off with some homemade cinnamon cream cheese frosting, and the finished product was just divine! The whole family will love this fall dessert!

Apple Cinnamon Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting 

What you need:
4 cups peeled and sliced apples
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup melted butter

1- 21 ounce Immaculate Baking Yellow Cake Mix
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup water
1 teaspoon cinnamon

8 ounces cream cheese, at room temp
1/2 cup butter, at room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 glass baking dish.

Layer apples in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and pour melted butter over the top.

Whisk together the cake mix, melted butter, water and cinnamon until combined. Pour over top of the apples and spread evenly. Bake for 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Set aside to cool.

Once cake has cooled, Beat together the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, powdered sugar and cinnamon with an electric mixer until smooth. Evenly spread the frosting on the cake. Serve and refrigerate any leftovers.
