All throughout the year, I bake cakes and goodies, but definitely the ones I enjoy the most baking is when it is for family and friends. In late January, we were invited to share dinner and a few drinks to celebrate my aunt’s birthday, and I was happy to bake this delicious cake I found on Food52.
Already baked an Apple Cake from my Grandma Lucy’s recipe collection, I wanted to try a different take on the cake. A few basic ingredients are all that’s needed to bake this great dessert. Take this cake for example: apples, butter, cinnamon and butterscotch chips combined make a flavorful cake, but what I specially loved about this cake was the addition of honey to the batter. The last time I added honey to a cake’s batter was a complete fail, so after carefully reading all the praise and comments of the recipe, I was sold. I prepared everything and in less than 45 minutes the cake was in the oven and the kitchen clean, just waiting for the goodness to come out of the oven.
Out of the 3 apples that the recipe asks, make sure to save a few wedges, so you can arrange them later on the top of the cake. After transferring the cake to a platter, I dusted the top with confectioners sugar, but you can do so with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or just as is.
