apple cake!

More often than not, when I bake using fruit, it’s because I bought fruit earlier in the week with the intentions of snacking healthy but ended up choosing junk food instead. I could beat myself up about it, but I’d rather just accept that I’ve got a mean sweet tooth and turn my almost bad fruit into amazing things, like cobblers and cakes. This time around, I made an apple cake. I really love baked goods that can double as a treat and as breakfast – who doesn’t love NOT cooking first thing in the morning? Making coffee is hard enough some mornings. Gosh – it’s amazing how much my morning attitude has changed since having Nori Luz! Mama’s sleepy. And hungry. Oh yeah, about that cake. It turned out perfectly moist, perfectly sweet and perfectly delicious. I really enjoyed biting into soft apple pieces suspended in the cake – I had only had apple pie until now, so it was a new sensation for me but I can strongly say, I was into it. Would I make it again? You betcha.
