Apple Cake


*Post contains affiliate links* 

Have you ever had a dessert emergency? Sometimes you just gotta have something sweet! And then you go foraging through the pantry checking to make sure you have all the ingredients for the desired recipe. Then you get frustrated because crap you’re out of this or that! It stinks and maybe I’m the only one without a constantly stocked pantry… Do any of you feel my pain!??!? On one such occasion I was craving a apple cinnamon cake of some sort. And sure enough my kids had polished off the entire bag of apples I had just purchased. So I being the determined type thought I would try using my food storage dehydrated apples. I was desperate! But lucky for you my little experiment was a HUGE success! The cake turned out amazing and I actually prefer it! And it’s a great way to rotate my apples. (I also love them in my oatmeal) but I digress 🙂 You gotta give this cake a try! It is super easy to make and has ingredients that are typically always on hand! Love those type of recipes!
