Kitchen Boss – Apple Snackin’ Cake


So Meg is a HUGE Buddy fan!  You know Buddy from Cake Boss and Kitchen Boss

She loves the show so much that when a little birdie told us he was bringing his show to town we scored tickets for her. 

It’s really cute, she can give you a lot of info about Carlo’s Bakery and a bit of the history behind it! *grin*

But I digress…

Back to Friday Food Fight!

 Recently, we watched an episode of Kitchen Boss where Buddy made a yummy Apple Snackin’ Cake and we decided to give the recipe a try!  The recipe was pretty easy to follow and when it came out of the oven it smelled to die for!  Not to mention,  it was moist and tasted absolutely  fabulous! 

So we thought we’d share this yummy recipe with you! 

 I swear the picture does it no justice!


2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
1‑1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 cup neutral or light olive oil
scant 1/2 cup natural applesauce
2 large eggs
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut into dice
2 medium Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into medium dice
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1‑1/2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350°, center rack. Grease a straight-sided 9″ x 13″ baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking soda, salt and spices. In another bowl, whisk together the oil, applesauce and eggs. Add the wet ingredients, the apples and the walnuts to the dry ingredients, folding in with a spatula until everything is moistened and combined. This is very thick and very chunky – more apples to batter.
  3. Spread an even layer in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Bake 40-45 minutes or until clean in the center.
  4. Let cool before cutting.

  1. Awesome! That looks delicious!

    Thanks to Meg and Uncle Erich, my girls are HUGE Cake Boss fans too. I hope we can see the show too. 🙂


  2. WOW!! That is really good cake. I could snack a lot of it before I come to my senses if I’m not careful. I would cut back on the sugar when I make it again though but it is a winner for sure. Thank you for posting it.
