In my house, we always have apples. Oddly enough they are usually not baking apples. My daughter loves to snack on apples and she'll eat at least 2 a day. So when I buy apples I buy 2 bags at a time. Well, sometimes they start to look less than desirable toward the end.
That's when I start looking for recipes.
I found this one on the Internet and happened to have all the ingredients I needed, so I made it.
This cake is really good. It's moist and has a good apple flavor. I poured a little confectioners' sugar glaze on top but it really doesn't need it. It's pretty sweet on it's own but it sure looks pretty with the glaze.
This was a great use of apples. Glad I found this recipe.

Confectioners' Sugar Glaze
