Fresh Apple Cake
This Fresh Apple Cake recipe is moist, dense and sink-your-teeth-in good. The recipe uses fresh apples in the cake and a praline candy frosting to go with it. The frosting, in particular, is extremely delicious and worth the efforts when made from scratch. It brings the cake to life. If you’re tired of using a store-bought frosting, then this is the frosting you have to make as directed in the recipe. Having said that, the cake in itself is so comforting and tasty with chunks of cooked apple bits inside. You could skip the frosting altogether if you want. It is a perfect dessert for a large gathering or family mealtime. This recipe is also a fool-proof method on how to bake a cake using fresh apples. This cake is also great when served for breakfast with a cup of coffee.

You can make this cake well in advance and freeze it and serve it on the day with freshly made frosting. If you like cupcakes, then go ahead and turn this cake into little cupcake beauties by all means. It makes for a wonderful presentation as well. You can add toasted nuts like pecans, walnuts, and cashews on top. Add orange zest to give it a sweet citrus flavor or pumpkin pie spice to the batter to enhance the comforting taste of the cake. Another interesting frosting that goes well with this cake is the cream cheese frosting with marshmallow fluff. You can also add a layer of peanut butter to this cake if you want. Always use fresh spices to get a rich depth of flavor within the cake. Do not use the spices if they have been sitting on your shelf for a long time.
