Simple Apple Cake

Apple Cake Recipe
Apple Cake
Apple cake is one of those cakes that are so perfect because they can be eaten for breakfast or dessert.  I like to think my Apple Cake is quite simple yet elegant – thanks to the dusting of powdered sugar.  This cake is really best served for brunch with some tea or coffee, or you can serve it for dessert along with a scoop of my Salted Caramel Ice Cream!.  Its so light and not too sweet, plus the apples make this cake extra moist!  Enjoy this cake any time of the day – see recipe demonstration below!
