Rate this post

Teacher Appreciation Week Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7th through May 11th!

An apple for teacher is a time-honored tradition, but this year, why not take teacher's favorite fruit and create something special (and delicious!) during Teacher Appreciation Week with Tree Top's Apple-Dapple Cake.

This moist, not-too-sweet cake is a perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack, which will help tide teachers over through the craze of the school day. As an added bonus, it's fun and easy for kids to make, with supervision, of course.

Apple Dapple Cake RecipeTree Top Apple-Dapple Cake



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Tree Top Apple Sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups finely chopped apples


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup milk


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Make a well in the center and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine eggs, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Stir in apples.
  • Spread the batter in a greased and floured 9 x 13-inch pan. Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes.
  • For the glaze, combine the brown sugar, butter, and milk in a small saucepan. Cook and stir until bubbly and all of the sugar is dissolved. Cool slightly. Drizzle warm over cake when it has cooled for 5 minutes, so it can seep into the cake and keep it moist and completely irresistible.
