Fresh Apple Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze





Before I begin I would like to apologize for not baking with "The Cake Slice" for the last four months. Honestly I don't have a good excuse. I'm really going to make an effort not to fall of the wagon like that again. I really did miss baking with group and would hate to miss out.

This months Cake Slice choice is "Fresh Apple Cake" from "Southern Cakes" by Nancie Mcdermott. 
I really like the cake its nutty and moist from the diced apples. The glaze was perfect and not overly sweet. I did make a few changes to the recipe. I only used half of the oil it called for and doubled the cream in the glaze. I wasn't really sure what kind of apples to use, so I went with granny smith. It was my first time using apples in a cake and was worried my family would not like it. No one complained and asked for seconds! 
I will post the recipe in the next few days. I 've been doing fall cleaning all weekend long and I'm exhausted! Dont' forget to check back in a few days, I should have it up by then.


I almost forgot to mention that the "Cake Slice" baking group is now accepting new members. Any one wishing to join the group may contact Katie at appleandspice@hotmail.co.uk with "The Cake Slice Member" as the subject by October 20th 2010. Include your name, blog name, and blog url. We will be starting to bake from a new cookbook in October. You don't have to purchase the cookbook, the monthly recipes or posted on the "Cake Slice" blog every month. For more info and rules please contact Katie.
