I am making a sweet 16 cake next week and the birthday girl wants apple filling but doesn't like spice cake. Any ideas on what other flavors of cake go well with apple filling? I was thinking plain yellow/butter cake but that seems like it might be a bit rich. Thanks in advance for your input.
Chocolate (we dip fruit slices in it all the time) or for a lighter cake use a plain white/vanilla.
By saying no to spice cake, would that rule out a Snickerdoodle recipe? It starts with a white cake, uses melted butter and a bit of cinnamon. Would be delish with the apple filling!
If no to the cinnamon in the cake, what about a caramel cake or a butter pecan cake?
I have made a yellow cake with apple pie filling and vanilla whipped cream frosting, it was delicious!
i was thinking of a caramel cake too!! it would be like eating a caramel apple at the fair!! yumm
I don't know what your apple filling is like.
My suggestion is peanut butter cake, which probably doesn't go with your apple filling, but I used to run a bed and breakfast and I came up with a peanut butter whipped cream that I served with apple slices for breakfast. Your question has me thinking about re-working peanut butter whipped cream into a peanut butter apple filling for cake.
I made a white chocolate mud cake with a mango filling. The mango filling ended up tasting like apple pie and went really well with the cake. Maybe white chocolate mud cake would be good? Kids love chocolate
Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. The Butter Pecan cake sounds especially good. I talked to the girl's grandmother and we have decided to go with Yellow cake - she thinks that will be the best. But sometime I will try the Butter Pecan - and the Caramel.
