Apple Cake Filler: Success from Disaster

I have been trying new recipes at home on my family recently, and my family has tried each of them. They have tried the successes and the failures. I recently have been trying to perfect an apple cider cake recipe. It hasn’t worked yet, but I am almost there. I think. However, when I was testing out my apple cider cake recipe I came up with a apple compote recipe to fill the cake with that my family loves. So, the story is that some success are unexpected. I didn’t plan on making an apple compote filler for my cakes, but I did create a pretty successful recipe if I say so myself.

Now here is my APPLE COMPOTE recipe.


  • 2 apples ( I prefer Honey-crisp)
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1 TBS of lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup + 3 TBS of brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp of nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt


  1. Clean, peel, and core your apples. Then chop into small cubes for cooking.
  2. In a cold sauce pan, place cut apples and lemon juice together. Add orange juice, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Place on the stove at medium heat and stir occasionally until apples are tender. Look for the juices to become more like a thin syrup before turning off the heat.
  4. Let cool off on the stove with lid on before either storing for later or filling your cake.
