Today, we have cake and it’s really easy and quick to throw together. It’s also loaded with apples and walnuts. Perfect for fall . 🍂

Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Sugar ( see below recipe note)
  • Salt + baking soda+ ground cinnamon

  • Vanilla
  • Milk

A few recipe notes: You will need 2 types of flour for this recipe and 2 types of sugar. Regular and whole wheat flour. Plus, regular and brown sugar. If you don’t have any whole wheat flour on hand, you can replace it with regular flour.

This recipe requires 3 cups of peeled and chopped apples. This should be about 3-4 mediums size apples.

I opted to garnish a few pieces with caramel sauce before serving (yum!). This is optional, but, does go really well with the cake. Whipped cream with additional walnuts are also an option.
