Apple cake

My parents have a few apple trees and that meant an abundance of apples every September. And so we had apple cake at least weekly and apple juice daily. Now that I live without my parents, it’s time for me to learn to bake an apple cake myself. In fact, I filmed my first attempt to do that. Take a look and try the cake yourself!

Even my boyfriend, who doesn’t really like tomatoes, asked to make it again!
