You’d think that with me being pregnant I’d be craving cake and lots of it. Well, it’s the total opposite! I’m craving salty, sour, and spicy. I can’t get enough of grapefruit lately. I have been on a sour kick this week so I have a bunch of granny smith apples. I was finally craving something a little sweet, so a cake that I used to have from a supermarket came to mind. It was called Jewish Apple Cake, then they started calling it Grandma’s Apple Cake. Either way, I absolutely love it!
I found a recipe online and thankfully it was pretty close to what I remembered! I added more apples and somehow added way too much OJ so I added a little flour to balance, and it turned out fine! Phew!
Have you ever tried this type of cake? If you like apple pie this is basically it in a cake form. Mmm throw a little ice cream on top and you’re set!
So let’s get to the recipe. Obviously like I stated I added a little more of things so this is slightly adapted.
