This past weekend, I visited our local apple orchard, and as usual, bought WAY too many apples for us to eat. I don’t know why I do this every year, you’d think I’d have learned by now that my family doesn’t eat tons of raw apples! So, to avoid throwing these apples away in a few days when they’ve gone soft, I’ve been baking up a storm. Applesauce, apple cookies, and now, apple cake.
I recommend keeping this recipe on hand for your entertaining this fall. The recipe goes together extremely quickly, and it uses grated apples, as opposed to chopped, so there’s no worries about biting into a soft cake and a not so soft piece of apple.
This cake is also not too sweet, so you can actually serve it for a breakfast, brunch, or dessert! It’s a versatile recipe that you’ll surely find a use for this fall.
