In the fall it is so fun to get fresh apples for a deal! Nothing like less than .99 per pound! But I always find myself trying to find things to do with them rather than just eating the apples. So this has led to me making large quantities each fall of apple sauce, apple butter, apple pie, apple crisp, apple muffins, and now apple cake!
Apple cake is probably, aside from the apple crisp, my favorite! Happy Apple Season!
