Oh the weather is cool, the nights are long and I just want to hunker
down in the evenings by a glowing fire with a little treat.
So-I found a perfect cake to satisfy my sweet tooth without going
over the top. I am even thinking this might be one of the desserts
that I make for Thanksgiving.
This cake is filled with fresh apples, toasted pecans and a perfect
frosting made with fresh honey. I think we might be able to even
say that this cake is healthy! wink…
I have really become a fan of bundt cakes, and I will tell you why.
They seem to be no fail, easy to mix, love the consistency, simple
to decorate, stunning to serve and are great for transporting.
