This apple cake is perfect with brewed coffee. I like the combination for breakfast especially when the cake is still fresh from the fridge. I love to eat cold moist cakes and this is one of those.
To me, this cake version is more of a pound cake. It is the heavy type that should be eaten along with your favorite beverage on the side. The combination of apples and cinnamon is really good. I think that this is one of those cakes that you can make any given day because the ingredients are not hard to find and it fits the budget.
I used Granny Smith apples fresh from the orchard. My entire family went out to go apple picking for the little ones. They enjoyed the activity and the apples. Now we have to make different apple dishes with all the bushels of apples that we got. This is just the start. I might make more apple pies too.
