Apple Cinnamon Cake

While we were coming down to the last of the apples we picked from the orchard, I was running out of recipes to use.

With only a couple left in the fruit bowl, and no sweet treat for my afternoon snack I decided some recipe testing was in order!

Apples and cinnamon, could there be a better pairing?  

This recipe is simple and delicious. It’s a perfect treat to go with your warm cup of coffee or tea on these chilly fall days.

It was so delicious, especially still warm from the oven!
