Yesterday i saw beautiful crispy apples lying in the fridge. I have no problem finishing those, because they are fresh and tasted amazing. But my passion for baking urged me to use them and bake something. So i decided to bake a proper apple cake, when i surfed the internet i came across this pretty simple recipe and immediately tried it out. The outcome was so yum, it tasted just divine and guess what the cake is over by now.
