Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut apple in half and remove core. Cut each half into slices approximately 1/8-inch thick.

  • Stir together brown sugar and water in medium saucepan. Add apple slices. Cook, stirring gently over medium heat, until apple slices are softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Sprinkle cranberries in bottom of nonstick or greased 9-inch cake pan. Arrange apple slices over cranberries, drizzling with brown sugar sauce. Set aside.

  • In large bowl or mixer, beat butter with granulated sugar until thoroughly combined. Add apple sauce and egg.

  • In separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Gently blend into apple sauce mixture. Spoon batter over apples and cranberries, spreading evenly.

  • Bake 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool 15 minutes before turning cake out onto wire rack to cool completely.
