Apple Cake Recipe

This apple cake recipe dates back so far no one in our family knows where it originally came from. The first written apple pie recipe dates back to 1381 in England. We love history because we know that people always return to the classics.

Every now and again a new diet trend sticks its head out. People then start using different ingredients to adopt classic recipes to match that of the new diets. These trends seldom last. People tend to always go back to the originals. We have analytics that proves this.

This apple cake recipe is a testimony to the fact that people always return to what they know. Most famous and classic recipes happen by chance, as most good things do. These are the thing people remember, not the names of fancy diets.

I wish I knew where this apple cake recipe came from and I burn to know the history and how it landed in the hands of the female members of my generation. The only thing I know is that this apple pie recipe has been in our family for over a centennial.

What I do know is that this apple cake recipe works and it tastes great. We are sure you will enjoy this recipe. Please let us know what you think of this recipe. You can also take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom

Thanks and happy apple cake baking.
