My mom, that is. You remember my Mom’s love for making apple desserts, right? After I made a Traditional Polish Apple Pie (Szarlotka), she got inspired and she created a Honey Szarlotka with Raisins & Nuts. She liked the apple pies so much, she created more cakes with apples for Easter – namely the Apple Poppy Seed cake with Chocolate Glaze (which was to-die-for!) and the Apple Crumb Cake (another amaaaazing creation, this is not the apple crumb cake you’re used to!). I just love Polish cake recipes and I don’t know anyone who makes them better than my Mom does!

Cinnamon Apple Cake with Chocolate Chips (all natural) by sensua

We had a bunch of uneaten apple slices from a Sunday before Memorial Day weekend because our sandwiches and eggs during our mini picnic had us pretty pretty full. The time for apples just never came, especially since our mini-adventure through North Illinois was cut short due to rain. So the following day, Memorial Day Monday, we had a big bowl of sliced apples ready to be eaten… or ready to be used in a cake! A lightbulb went off in my Mom’s head and she created the Cinnamon Apple Cake with Chocolate Chips. And let me tell you, she did GOOD and she did it well.


I sprinkled some cinnamon on top of the slice for the photos but I think the cake is cinnamony enough. I personally am a HUGE cinnamon fanatic. I seriously put it in everything. Any sweet thing, I’ll put cinnamon in there. I love it for the great health benefits and the flavor. It’s just perfect!

I think this Cinnamon Apple Cake was a big success! I loved the big apple chunks, they added a great deal of moisture to the cake and the dark chocolate chips added a whole other dimension to the cake -a complexity that’s impossible to replicate without the use of dark chocolate, I think. If you are a chocolate lover, you will understand what I mean here 😉 Chocolate Power! Woop! I highly recommend you to try this apple cake recipe! It’s a must.

  1. Your mum certainly did good. The cake looks gorgeous. I love the combination of flavours, apple and cinnamon is an all time favourite of mine and chocolate, well, we will always have a love affair 😀

  2. I’m pretty sure that my mom’s Polish cakes are part of the reason that I look forward to the holidays so much… especially when it comes to the ones that have apples. I’m pretty much like you are with cinnamon – I’ll put it on anything sweet, and I’ll often make excuses to eat sweet lunches or dinners just so I can satisfy a cinnamon craving. As for apples, I love the popular nut butter and apple combo, but I’d have to say that my absolute favorite is plain Greek yogurt with homemade applesauce… and cinnamon 😉

  3. Yum this looks delicious! I think I love apple cinnamon all the way! I love cinnamon in my yoghurt bowl mix ups and also my smoothies.

  4. This is a beautiful apple cake. I love almost anything with apples in it, so it’s hard to name a favorite. I’d love to try this recipe, for sure.

  5. Looks delicious 🙂 I guess I’ve got to reserve time for weekend 😀

  6. Ohhhhh boy. Not only does this look fantastic, but I just so happen to have a bunch of apples sitting around in my fridge that I’m not entirely sure if I’ll ever get around to eating (so much other good fruit right now!). AND I have a get-together to bake for in a couple of weeks! Perfect. Perfect perfect perfect. Can’t wait to try this out!

  7. Yum, cinnamon and apple, a great combination. We have 5 apple trees, so this recipe will be used this fall! Thanks for sharing.!

    • Ohhh I wish we still had an apple tree. We had 4 or 5 back when we lived in Poland as well as cherry trees. I miss it. I have a lot more Apple Cake recipes on this blog so be sure to check out the others as well 🙂 Enjoy and thank you for the comment! xo

  8. I’m definitely trying this recipe!

  9. Oh wow that looks amazing! I love apples and cinnamon. I love the little added bit of chocolate added to this. I am a simple girl and love my apple pie, with some cold ice cream on top. I use cinnamon several times a month when baking, and also use them in pancakes, or when the kids want cinnamon/sugar toast

  10. G’day! LOVE apple cinnamon, choc chips, TRUE!
    I would love to have a slice of this now too!
    Cheers! Joanne
