Apple Cake Squares

Spread the love

This cake is quick to make and you can serve it for sweet or wrap cuts up to take to school or the workplace.This recipe of baked apple squares is easy to make and requires just a few ingredients that most people, who like baking, have in their pantries. It doesn’t require any special tools as you don’t need to shred the apples or use a mixer unless you really want to.

The apple squares are super easy and quick to prepare on a busy weeknight! If you’re bored with making the same apple recipes, such as apple crisp,  crumble, or cobbler, try these little apple squares, and you’d be very happy.

In this recipe, I am utilizing a liberal measure of apples, threw along with cinnamon and earthy colored sugar, collapsed in the cake hitter and heated in a 9×9 square dish. These apple cake bars are simply a great deal of apple lumps kept intact just barely of cake hitter.

Apples are an incredibly nutritious fruit that offers multiple health benefits. They’re rich in fiber and antioxidants. Eating them is linked to a lower risk of many chronic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Apples may also promote weight loss and improve gut and brain health.

Apple Cake Squares Ingredients:


You will core, slice, and chop the apples. Do not peel them, as the skin has a lot of fiber and nutrients that are good for human body.


I used granulated sugar.


I used large eggs.


I used all-purpose flour.

Baking powder and salt

Baking powder is what makes the apple cake bars rise. Salt is the magic ingredient, as it enhances the flavors and pushes the ingredients to get friendly with each other. Don’t skip it.


I used regular cinnamon here, but if you have only apple pie spice in the pantry, use it. Besides cinnamon, apple pie spice also has nutmeg and allspice so that the bars will be tastier.


Pure vanilla extract is always nice to have, but it is getting more and more expensive. Use the best vanilla you can find, and everything will be OK. :- )

Vegetable oil

I always have sunflower oil in the pantry. We need a neutral vegetable oil here, and you can use anything you have available, canola, sunflower, corn, etc.


Raisins bring texture and sweetness to the cake. You can replace them with cranberries.


I used coarsely chopped pecans. Apples pair well with walnuts, so you can safely replace the pecans with some walnuts.

Optional Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts,2 tablespoons white sugar, 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon for a nutty topping
  • 1/2 cup raisins, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 2 teaspoons cinnamon for a raisin topping.
  • You can mix the raisins and nuts together with the same sugar-cinnamon topping or substitute chocolate chips for raisins.
