Deliciously moist apple cakes

Posted on March 18, 2012



Sometimes you find a recipe that’s a bit too special and it sticks with you , these apple cakes are exactly as the name suggests , deliciously , moist and super special.

I initially found the recipe through a cooking party and was impressed with not only the final result but also the quick preparation involved and short cooking time . Over the years I have tweaked the recipe a little and we have an absolute winner with this one !

The sweet smell of apples and cinnamon baking with a hint of vanilla wafting down the house is enough to get the appetite going , put it this way , these little bites of heaven don’t last very long in our house.Perfect as a lunchbox or after school treat or take in for morning tea …they have also been very popular when served at brunch or breakfast, whichever way you decide to serve them, I promise they will not disappoint . The best part is get the kids involved with the preparation , it really is that simple !
