Easy to make gourmet apple pie with cinnamon buttermilk and cinnamon.


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick), at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Rondelle Pure Vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped apple (I used one medium Cortland)
  • heaping tablespoon of turbinado sugar
  • extra cinnamon for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Spray an 8-inch round cake pan with cooking spray (specifically, the kind with flour in it) or butter and flour the pan.
  2. In a medium bowl or with a KitchenAid Artisan 5 Quart Stand Mixer, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the vanilla and egg to the mixer and beat well.
  5. With the mixer on low, alternately add the dry ingredients and buttermilk in 3 additions, starting and ending with the dry ingredients (so dry, buttermilk, dry, buttermilk, dry).
  6. Beat only until just combined.
  7. Scrape the batter into the cake pan, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula. Scatter the apple pieces evenly over the top of the cake batter then sprinkle evenly with raw sugar. Finally, sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for ten minutes, then turn it onto a wire rack to cool.
