I had a bunch of apples in the fridge and I wasn’t sure how I’d make use of them all. I knew I could make applesauce, but I wanted something a bit more satisfying. I played around with a combination of the ingredients I used to make my Lemon Pound Cake, Carrot and Pumpkin Muffins, and Banana Muffins and came up with an Apple Cake. I was surprised at how moist it stayed, even after being in the fridge for a few days. I haven’t had any leftover to test how it freezes, but I hope it freezes well!
