This cake recipe is a variation of one of my favorite classic dishes, apple pie.  I wanted to create a recipe that combined apples, cinnamon, and spice flavors into a delicious cake that I could serve with ice cream or a whipped topping.  This Skinny Apple Pie Cake recipe turned out incredible!  I 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.
