I really like cake. I am the person at birthday parties who scrapes all of that unnecessary frosting off of the cupcake or cake and leaves only a thin layer because I think the cake is the best part. My husband and two of my children beg to differ! It’s not that I don’t like frosting, because I do appreciate a nice homemade Buttercream, but for me the cake is where it’s at. Cakes usually aren’t on my dessert menu in the fall because I am too busy happily baking pies and apple crisp. Earlier this week, I decided to try something new with apples and make this breakfast cake. This Spiced Apple Breakfast Cake is a moist, melt in your mouth kind of cake that is best served on a chilly morning with a hot cup of coffee. It’s bursting with the warm flavors and aromas of fresh apples, raisins, walnuts, cinnamon and nutmeg. I thinks it’s absolutely acceptable to eat cake for breakfast as long as it’s called breakfast cake right? I mean, it’s in the name and everything:) This cake can also be enjoyed after dinner sprinkled with powdered sugar or topped with fresh whipped cream. If you have any left over, it can also be reheated in a low oven the next day. I’ve even packed a piece of this into my children’s lunch boxes for a sweet treat! Do you have a favorite fall cake?
