Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze recipe : I’m throwing in a little seasonal variety today.  Seasonal variety.  That makes sense, right?  We’ve had such a mild winter here in Texas, so mild that I’m truly frightened about what sort of scorching temperatures summer might bring.

I’m trying not to worry about it by completely skipping over summer in my mind…and thinking about fall.  Ah FALL, cool breezes, pretty leaves and apples!

Still following my mental distraction from thoughts of Hades Texas summertime?  You’ll like where it’s going.

This little cake was super easy to make and turned out so moist and delicious.  The brown sugar glaze put it way over the top.  Make it soon…no need to wait until fall arrives.Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze
