  1. You have a perfectly preppy looking slice of cake in your beautiful pictures. The recipe sounds delicious and I will put on “to do” list. Thanks.

  2. Apple cakes are the best, aren’t they? I always bake with apples and I add cinnamon most of the time to my apple bakes. Love how you added more spices though, this cake looks very delicious.
