Slice of…Apple Cake

I made the most delicious apple cake for our trip to Boone last week! I got the recipe from my mom, who got it from a coworker. I LOVE this cake because it is moist, it is a bundt cake, and it is “healthy” because one of the ingredients is apples (you know what they say: “an apple (cake) a day…”). My biggest tip for anyone making this cake is to  butter and flour the bundt pan really well…

It was all fun and games…

 

Until…oops!

We were all upset, but only for a moment!

May not be magazine-cover perfect, but it still tasted delicious! We may or may not have even consumed it as both a dessert and a breakfast food. Vacation is the best!
