Story Behind this Recipe
I had a lot of apples, so I baked this to use them up. I've made a variety of apple cake, and this is one of them. The texture is not so fluffy, but a moist and chewy cake. It's such a delicious cake that you'll crave again.
The recipe is written for a 15 cm round pan or a 18 cm pound cake pan, but you can use any pan you have. It'll brown slightly on top, but that's okay. To check if it is done baking, insert a toothpick or skewer in the center. If it comes out clean, it's ready.
