Fall means apples, and apples mean moist, delicious, cake made with fresh apples. This cake is so good and quite easy to make. Serve it at room temperature or warm with a drizzle of caramel sauce and whipped cream. I must admit, I love this cake for breakfast too! Tart apples work the best and really permeate the entire cake with an apple flavor. You can get fancy and make the cake in a bundt pan, or springform pan. I like the old standard 9 x 13 for this cake, but cupcakes work well with this recipe too! I don’t think the shape matters a bit, just take a bite and you will love it.
