Apple season! I grow buckets of Apples every year so I have quite the arsenal of Apple recipes stashed away for the Autumnal bake off that ensues every year come Apple picking time. This one is my absolute, above all others favourite Apple bake! This cake is incredible! The combination of soft fluffy sponge, apple chunks, aromatic Cinnamon and the crunchy sugary crust…omg, its a keeper!

As always give it a try and let me know how you get on in the comments or tag me on Instagram I would love to see your creations
