Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. I love the temperature outside. It’s clean and crisp. My birthday is in October. My favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, is in November and Honeycrisp apples are available. Need I say more? I made this apple cake this week when I was having trouble with my computer and I didn’t have the cables I needed to do something. I was frustrated. My frustration came to an end when I realized I had everything in the house I needed to make thisonly has 9 ingredients, you probably have everything in your pantry, too. This apple cake makes me happy. And usually other people happy, too.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
