Much like apple pie, apple cake contains slices of apples and plenty of spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, to help build upon and compliment the crisp, delicate flavor of an apple. The main difference between apple pie and apple cake is that apple cake contains significantly more bread than apple pie; in apple cake, apples serve as the accent flavor of the cake, along with key spices.
One unique feature associated with apple cake is its unwavering ability to stay moist, which is primarily the result of an apples special ability to retain water. As a result, apple cake can involve the use of an extremely dry cake recipe.
Although apple cake has been traced back to its origins in the United Kingdom, it has become a popular dessert that has spread to much of the rest of the world, especially the United States.
