I volunteered to bring dessert to our weekly Girl's Night tonight. Last night I was furiously searching the internet for "apple dessert recipes."
I knew I had to make it!
The second Cooper showed signs of being in Na-Na Napland, I hurried off into the kitchen and made the cake!
The scent was delightful! I hope that Cooper had sweet cinnamon-y apple dreams as he snoozed. I know I would.
I didn't have orange juice, so I squeezed about half a lemon & added 1/4 cup of apple sauce into the mix. I think that was fine!
The cake took a bit longer than I expected to bake. I think my total baking time was about 1 hour and 45 minutes. I just check every 5 mins or so after the initial hour and 15 were up.
I cheated, and took a piece out for an afternoon snack. I think the girls will forgive me.
It was still warm a few hours later. Soo moist & delicious!
I can see why this is a favorite. I mean LOOK AT ALL OF THOSE APPLES!!! How can it not be good?
You can find the recipe here. Thanks Deb's Mom! You have sooo much to be proud of!
