Carmel Apple Cake
I am gearing up for a busy day/week. I spent another day helping Torrance out on the tool truck. I didnt spend the whole day like a man this time. I helped out for about 2 hours and then headed home to take care of all the stuff that had been neglected the day before. In particular, laundry (ew). He finally made it home lat night with the tool truck looking good as ever after he put in another full day working on it. It is like a whole new truck! Torrance is NOT one to work an entire weekend so I am very proud of him for putting in the extra effort!
Now, guess what type of morning it was….
Yep, big huge giant coffee day!!
So last night, since I was sorta pooped and in a daze from laundry and working all weekend, I did a little relaxing and baking!
I decided to make a carmel apple cake that I havent made in maybe a year.
It tasted like more of a breakfast coffee cake to be honest, and almost reminded me of a pancake! It was so moist and fluffy!
Since it was so giant and doesnt have chocolate in it, it probably wont go very fast in our house so I brought half of it to work for my co-workers to enjoy.
Here is the recipe:
