It’s fall time! And that means it’s apple time! To kick of fall, I found a great recipe for an absolutely delicious apple cake where you can use fresh apples! The recipe intends to make squares, but I kept it as a cake and it tastes just the same. I already made this cake two separate times, one of which I made two at the same time, which is why there are pictures of two bowls below, and I gave one to my dad’s awesome band and the other to my sister and her roommates. I used winesap and granny smith apples and they both came out great! Enjoy this cake while you still can get some fresh apples!
