Fresh Apple Cake

My husband was out of town for business in Jacksonville, Florida and brought home from his trip 6-7 Granny Smith apples from the hotel. He said, "I know you like them and you enjoy baking with them".  Now does that sound like a request for some dessert or what? 

I have had this apple cake recipe for years but have not made it in quiet some time. I guess I just needed those apples!

This is an easy recipe to whip up. The most time consuming part is peeling and chopping the apples. You can probably use only 2 apples but we like lots of apples in this dish so I put in 3 apples.

The smell of apples and cinnamon while cooking was lovely. My husband was eating it while it was still warm. Later he added whipped cream on top.

I sent some into work and it was a hit. You could have it as a dessert, for breakfast, or afternoon tea.

  1. sounds perfect and easy to make. have you ever tried not peeling the apples? may not work in a pie but it often works in a cake. i'll try it and let you know.

  2. This looks like a perfect "anytime" kinda cake. Here from the Grand Social and so happy you posted! Now, do you think BB can switch out to Splenda Brown Sugar and Almond Milk instead of buttermilk?


I would love to hear from you. Your comments are special to me.
