I’m craving fall flavors, even though fall seems elusive right now. This cake just what I needed. I call it the Applesauce Cake because when the apples cook into the cake that is exactly what it tastes like on the top layer.
I used Granny Smith apples cut into sections. They get dropped into a pan of honey and lemon juice and cook until they are nice and tender.
The batter is delicious with the addition of lemon rind. It is then smoothed into a springform pan with the cooked apples added on top.
Then the best part, cinnamon and sugar! Didn’t you eat cinnamon and sugar toast as a kid for breakfast? It was one of my favorites, but now I rely on Trader Joes to make it for me…
Sprinkle the mixture on top of the apples and bake.
Enjoy this with a cup of coffee (iced) while dreaming of sweaters, scarves, and fuzzy slippers.
