Apple Cake

My coworker gifted me a bag of green apples, with the condition that I bring something back that tasted delicious. The result was an apple cake made with apples two ways. This cake is sweet, but not overly so, which makes it great for a dessert or brunch. This cake mostly made me excited for all the fall baking I can do once it gets cooler out.

RECIPE: Apple Cake
Makes 2 Round Cakes

4) Add a cup and a half of sugar to the mixing bowl and a 1/2 cup to the cast iron pan.


5) Sprinkle vanilla over the apples in the cast iron pan. Cook on low and stir to ensure even coating and cooking.
