  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 eggs
  • For Whipped Cream
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Apple and beer. Sounds weird, but's it's delicious!


Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl stir together the flour, both kinds of sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the apples, then make a well in the center. Add in the butter, vanilla, beer and eggs, stirring until just combined.

Pour into a 9-inch springform pan that has been greased. Bake at 350 until the center has set, 40-45 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

Just prior to serving add the cream, powdered sugar and beer (or whiskey) to a stand mixer. Mix on high until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes.

Serve cake topped with whipped cream.
