When the seasons change, my food cravings seem to change, too. I'm starting to long for hot soup and cozy comfort foods. And I've been baking a lot, too--not that I restrict that activity to particular times of the year!
Last week I tried a new recipe (two, actually) that are worth sharing. Since it's apple season, it seemed the right time to pull out a recipe I've had tucked away for some time.
Credit for the cinnamon apple cake recipe goes to Leslie Friend, who posted it on her blog a couple of years ago. I have no idea why I waited so long to bake this. It was easy to make and absolutely delicious! You probably have the ingredients in your kitchen right now. If not, it's worth traveling to the store so you can have this tonight.
My addition was the caramel sauce. Caramel and apples make a good pair, right? I found a recipe online and whipped up a batch as the cake was baking. We drizzled it over each slice as it was served, and it was heavenly! Leftovers--if you have any--would be great on ice cream or as a dip for some fresh apples.
Are you hungry yet? I am! Let me know if you give this a try.
