Apple Cake

Apples, apples, and more apples in the fall means lots of delicious baking opportunities

Apple cake is one of those recipes I make regularly, especially in the fall. Apples are in abundance in September and October. Red, yellow, and green apples fill the produce sections in grocery stores and farmers’ markets. Personally I enjoy taking my kids to the local apple orchards to pick our own apples. We then use them to bake apple cakes, apple desserts or, to make preserves.

Apples are not only delicious but are also nutritious

Apples are also a great source of fiber, pectin which is good for digestion, and have plenty of vitamins, such as A, C, and E. And, because they are readily available, you don’t have to go out of your way to get your hands on some.

Endless ways to use apples in your recipes

Baking with apples is also very easy. Try them in pies, muffins, pancakes, or breads. They’ll supply lots of flavor and nutrients to any recipe. My favorite recipe is Aurelia’s Apple Cake because it’s one of the simplest recipes I know and the cake turns out perfectly delicious every time.

This apple cake is not too sweet, a little tart, and goes wonderfully with a hot cup of tea or coffee in the morning. You can also enjoy it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I also like this recipe because it does not require too much sugar. Plus, less sugar means fewer empty calories.

For this apple cake recipe I use all-purpose type 550 wheat flour from Poland, but you can also use type 500 to make it even more delicate.
