This cake recipe is a variation of one of our favorite classic dishes, apple pie.  We wanted to create a recipe that combined apples, cinnamon, and spice flavors into a delicious cake that could be serve with ice cream or a whipped topping.  his Skinny Apple Pie Cake recipe turned out incredible! We served the cake warm out of the oven and paired it with Cool Whip® Free dessert topping, but you could add ice cream or frozen yogurt as well!
