Apple Cake

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
