Yummy Apple Spice Cake

Do you have a lot of apples this fall season? Are you looking for a recipe that uses apples and wonderful spices to bring out the flavors? This is a delicious recipe that is great for the holidays with the apples and spices! A perfect fall dessert! I adapted this recipe from Diabetic Living. It makes a small 8x8x2-inch pan, which is perfect for when you want to make a quick dessert that does not take much time. Plus a small pan helps with calorie control! The topping is a simple whipped cream with perhaps a sprinkle of cinnamon or other fun topping. It travels nicely since you can bring along some whip cream or other topping.

I think it looks yummy right in the pan! You can dice or slice your apples as you like them. I cut mine in chunks and they are tender with a bit of a snap. Apple Spice Cake

I like to top the whipped cream with some pretty toppings to add some color! It also looks nice on the plate. You can take a simple dessert and make it look gourmet with your toppings and plating. Apple Spice Cake View from top
